The Rose

Jennifer Potter

To discover how the rose has worked its way into the consciousness and the gardens of so many ages and cultures, Jennifer Potter begins by tracing the flower’s origins in the wild briars of the northern hemisphere. She then examines its appearance in Christian iconography and other traditions; its development in early modern European gardens; the plant’s progress in China, the Middle East and North America; its role in medicine and perfumery; and the hybridization and changing fashions of modern roses.
