About the Author

Stephen Scanniello is best known as the gardener who transformed the Cranford Rose Garden of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden into one of the world's most acclaimed rose gardens. President of the Heritage Rose Foundation and a member of the American Rose Society, he is a judge for the international rose trials in Europe and the United States. Scanniello has written three books on roses, including A Year of Roses, recipient of the American Horticultural Society's Annual Book Award. He lives and gardens in New Jersey. Douglas Brenner writes about gardens, antiques, and architecture for publications such as the New York Times, Martha Stewart Living, and Country Living. He is the coauthor, with artist Nancy Stahl, of Real Art: The Paint-by-Number Book and Kit (Workman 2004). Formerly the editor of Garden Design and Martha Stewart Living, Brenner divides his time between New York City and the New Jersey shore. He inherited his first rosebush, 'Climbing American Beauty, ' from a previous owner of his house, who planted it there around 1910.


"A rose by any other name might smell as sweet, but its history would be very different. . . . Covering social and cultural history, technology, art, and science, "A Rose by Any Name" proves that a whole world can be found within the petals of a single rose. Consider the excerpt that follows our valentine to you."-Martha Stewart Living "[Brenner & Scaniello] tell the naming stories of some 1,200 varieties of roses among the more than 15,000 registered rose species and cultivars in their highly entertaining new book, "A Rose by Any Name," Each of its illuminating chapters reads almost like a mini biography, albeit of a plant. Best of all, the authors even reveal how you can name a rose after yourself."-Town & Country "Rose aficionados, acclaimed authors, and dedicated gardeners, Brenner and Scanniello deftly explore the intricate history and enduring mystery behind four dozen of the most famous, obscure, exotic, and unassuming names in rose cultivation. . . .The authors provide plenty of arcane facts and tantalizing revelation in an equally entertaining and educational foray into the competitive, complicated, and frequently comical world of rose naming."-Booklist "[A Rose by Any Name's] charming illustrations add to the enlightening origins, history and lore of more than 1,200 rose names."--Kansas City Star
