The Marker

Originating in France, the practice of planting Roses at the end of vines was common. The reason being, that Grape vines and Rose leaves are both prone to the same powdery mildew. As Roses are more susceptible than the grape vines, the mark of any mildew on its leaves was an early warning to viticulturists that disease is in the vineyard. While modern science has meant that disease can now be picked up much more quickly, Rosenthal’s “The Marker” pays homage to this quaint tradition.
