Douglas Brenner (Author). I have always been interested in how various roses got their names. This book goes well beyond the naming of the roses to telling so many wonderful stories about the various roses and the people whom loved them enough to bring them forth for all of us to enjoy. There is room for sequels to this book and I hope they write more! Well worth every penny paid for this book. Some fantastic art work in this book as well as a great reciepe for making Rose Water. Very enjoyable!! All rose lovers need this book in their library.

Douglas Brenner, Stephen Scanniello. More than fifteen thousand rose species and cultivars are grown worldwide. Every one of these plants has its own distinctive name, given perhaps by the person who first picked it for a sweetheart, a botanist who dissected it long ago or a horticulturist who nurtured it. Douglas Brenner and Stephen Sanniello tackle the thorny task of digging up the history behind rose names. Their stores are filled with enough romance, tragedy, mystery and scandal to satisfy even those who would never dream of actually tending a plant.

HERITAGE Douglas Brenner, left, and Stephen Scanniello, with Betty Vickers, a fellow rosarian, place heirloom .

HERITAGE Douglas Brenner, left, and Stephen Scanniello, with Betty Vickers, a fellow rosarian, place heirloom roses at the grave of George Folliott Harison, an 1830s breeder. IN the cold mist one morning in early April, Stephen Scanniello planted Harison’s Yellow - a rose bred in the 1830s by a reclusive New York lawyer, George Folliott Harison - at the Trinity Cemetery on the corner of Broadway and 153rd Street in Harlem, a stone’s throw from Mr. Harison’s grave. They initially chose about four dozen roses with interesting histories. Rather than a dry list of names each followed by a short explanation of the person/place/thing for which the rose was named, we are treated to tales of danger, intrigue, humor and pathos, all with historical tidbits thrown in to put it into context. We visit gardens that no longer exist and gardens that are still going strong.

Their stores are filled with enough romance, tragedy, mystery and scandal to satisfy even those who would never dream of actually tending a plant. For instance, did you know the gallica rose's perfume wafted through Pliny's Roman villa and lulled Marie Antoinette on the night before her wedding, or that roses in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries were mainly raised for medicinal purposes? With ornate vintage art and photographs, "A Rose by Any Name" unearths the roots or rose lore and reveals how people, communities and cultures across the globe and throughout the ages have identified the living things that matter to them most.
