Old Rose Survivors — Wild and Untamed  -  2014

A special issue of Rosa Mundi that embodies the mission of the Heritage Rose Foundation; to educate the public about old roses and the importance of preserving them. Old roses and their ancient ancestors, the wild roses, are the subjects of this anthology of writings by botanists, scientists and old rose lovers and researchers around the world. We may think of scientific writing as dry and detailed, but these scientists are passionate about roses, and their quests for knowledge of the wild ancestors of old roses make for delightful reading. From botany to rose rustling, the mysteries surrounding wild roses, found roses and the roses we all grow in our gardens unfold before us, enriching our understanding of these great heirloom plants! Old Rose Survivors — Wild and Untamed, is being mailed our to HRF members in early February, 2014. Additional copies may now be ordered on the Heritage Rose Foundation website. You will want to own more than one copy because you won't be able to resist sharing it with an old rose friend.
