Shaped like a miter's cap, delicately hued like pearl-colored petticoats, scented like honeyed almonds, or nodding heavily in the wind, old-fashioned rose varieties each possess a unique character, while their names often have stories as enchanting and evocative as the flowers themselves. The collection of 50 roses depicted here, beautifully photographed in the studio, reveals how these beloved plants received their names, from the Greenmantle, named for the caped heroine of Sir Walter Scott's novel Redgauntlet and noted for the aroma of its leaves rather than its blossoms, to the Rubens, a lush flesh color tinged with pink, named for the master of voluptuous nudes.
