A Rose is a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa, in the family Rosacea. There are over three hundred species and thousands of cultivars.
The long cultural history of the Rose has led to it being used often as a symbol of love and power. In ancient Greece, the rose was closely associated with the goddess Aphrodite. In the Iliad, Aphrodite protects the body of Hector using the “immortal oil of the rose.”
Red Roses are the quintessential flower of romance and love, and our spectacular color roses are perfect for all occasions including graduations (yellow roses), weddings (white roses), birthdays (lavender roses), thanksgiving (orange roses), and many more.
Did you know? In 1986 President Ronald Reagan signed legislation to make the Rose the floral emblem of the United States.
