This is the story of David Ruston, a man whose proficiency with flowers is legendary. His lectures and demonstrations on "the art of the old masters" impart memorable, detailed information about master painters and the flowers they used while creating their beautiful masterpieces. One of the world's most respected Rosarians, his expertise is acknowledged worldwide. Ruston created the largest private collection of roses in the Southern Hemisphere - a mecca for gardeners visiting Renmark, South Australia - which is now officially recognized as The National Collection of Roses. Clearly demonstrating how Ruston's life is intertwined with flowers, the book also includes photographs and descriptions of some of the flamboyant and unusual flower arrangements he has made.
