The History and Meaning of Roses

rosesRoses have a vibrant story. Throughout the history of the world, roses have been known to represent love, beauty, war, and politics. They have been used as decorations at parades and celebrations, as a base for aromatic perfumes and even to heal illnesses. The Roman Empire saw fit to create ornate public rose gardens for their citizens; and in the 15th century, white and red roses were used to signify the two warring factions in England, with their struggles being recorded as “The War of the Roses.” In the 17th century, they were so highly valued that they were considered legal tender and used as payment or bartering tools.

Roses are thought to have been grown originally in China and the Middle East, cultivated as early as 5,000 years ago. It was in the 18th century that they were introduced into Europe, Today roses exhibit approximately 150 species which grow throughout the world, as far North as Alaska and down into Africa. In the United States they are grown in all 50 states. They enjoy a perennial popularity as an extravagant expression of love or passion, and roses of all colors are known to carry deep meaning and emotion. Roses can represent friendship, honor, appreciation, hope, innocence and excitement. Suffice it to say, there is a rose for every sentiment you wish to convey.
