From University Press of Florida:

Contrary to common belief, many varieties of roses can flourish in Florida's heat and humidity. A much-needed guide for both home gardeners and landscape professionals, this book equips readers with the knowledge to successfully grow this popular plant in the state's tropical climate.

Rose connoisseur Victor Lazzari surveys the history of the rose; outlines the main classifications of roses; explains how to best cultivate the flower in the South Florida environment; and offers advice on designing thoughtful, eco-friendly, visually spectacular gardens with roses in this region. Lazzari then provides an illustrated compendium of 100 varieties of roses that work well in South Florida. Each entry contains a beautiful full-color photograph, a brief history of the rose variety, and notes on the variety's performance.

Complete with a thorough list of local rose retailers and organizations, this book is filled with useful information that has previously been difficult for Florida residents to locate. New gardeners and dedicated rosarians alike will delight in this approachable, eye-catching resource for finding and growing roses that thrive in the southernmost part of the state.
