The author describes ten of the best garden roses. These include "Newport Fairy," "Berries 'N Cream" and "Marie Pavie." He claims that roses from the Lady Banks and Fortuniana family, especially lutea, are the best garden roses because of their evergreen foliage, disease resistance and blooms. He also cites hybrid tea and mini roses that can be raised as garden roses.
