PINK LADIES AND CRIMSON GENTS, by Molly Glentzer, photographs by Don Glentzer

A Who’s Who of Antique Roses. The lifestyle editor of the Houston Chronicle collaborates with an award-winning photographer to present “portraits” of 50 highly prized roses, each named for a character from literature, history or mythology. Molly Glentzer’s charming text illuminates the derivations of each rose’s name and its qualities, as the color photographs do justice to their exquisite beauty.
