|Short Description||By Aurelia C. Scott. When Aurelia Scott met 75 year old Clarence Rhodes here in Portland Maine, she got her first taste of the obsessive world of rose gardeners. Rhodes is well known locally for riotous roses that abound on his small lot and out onto his sidewalk. He does not let cold winters, lack of space, or lack of money for equipment get in his way. His ingenuity and enthusiasm prompted Scott to interview a wide cross section of Americas "rose-a-holics" and her book provices us with lively accounts of these visits. Scott and her new found rose friends all come together at the ARS Spring Rose Show and we get an inside look at the action there. Finally, overcome with the world of hybrid roses, Scott visits heritage rose lovers, whom she believe will be less obsessive. Not so! Hardcover 235pp.|
