Horizon Roses is a compilation of comments by the nation's top rose exhibitors on the exhibition potential of the newest hybrid teas, floribundas, miniflora and miniature roses. For most exhibitors, it has long been considered the indispensible guide to buying new show roses.

Horizon Roses 2014 contains a record 1,691 reports  by a record 94 reporters from 31 different states on the exhibition potential of 249 roses introduced in the last five years. The reports include 41 new roses not mentioned in prior issues. All comments are candid and reported in the words of the reporter. Supplementing the comments are individual photographs of 165 roses. The reports are set forth alphabetically and include statistics of the current show results of the reported varieties. In addition, information is provided on known sources.
