A unique photographic collection of 300 stunning roses that spans the full spectrum of the flower’s shades and hues, creating a breathtaking rainbow that will amaze flower lovers of all kinds.

Few flowers come in as many colors as the beloved rose. Curated by award-winning rosarian Danielle Dall’Armi Hahn, who personally owns more than 40,000 roses, the flowers in The Color of Roses were selected not only for their glorious and subtle color combinations but also for optimal availability, repeat blooming, disease resistance, improved vase life, and fragrance.

Organized by color, these 300 full-page photos take you on a journey through all the marvelous shades of white, yellow, pink, peach, purple, orange, red, caramel, and even green blossoms—not to mention striped and bicolor. This modern compilation of the world’s 300 most beautiful roses includes the essential statistics for each one, including name, plant type and size, breeder, and more to help gardeners, rose lovers, and floral designers discover their new favorite.

Roses have been treasured for centuries. They bloom from spring until frost, in virtually all but the most frigid zones and in a great range of varieties to suit every taste. The Color of Roses is the ultimate guide for selecting the perfect color rose for your garden, special event, or floral arrangement.
