"Take time to smell the roses." - Proverb
The Story of the Rose

Roses. Gentle, beautiful, graceful, and elegant! In times of great significance you can always rely on the rose as the perfect flower to convey words and emotions, that oftentimes are far too complex for us to convey naturally. Roses have quite the lengthy and tumultuous history. At roughly 35 million years old and with over 150 different subspecies spread far and wide, roses have been a relatively steadfast part of our short history on this planet. About 5000 years ago, people across Asia and Europe began cultivating garden roses. In Ancient Roman times the southern parts of the Roman Empire were famously home to many large communal gardens brimming with roses. Before the rise of Christianity, the Romans revered roses and attributed them to their Goddess Venus. Consecutively, once the Romans converted to the Christian faith under Emperor Constantine, the rose came to be associated with the Virgin Mary. Amid the 15th century, roses were symbolically used by warring factions vying for control of England in what would infamously come to be called the "War of the Roses". Roses had so much appeal that during the 17th century, it wasn't uncommon to use roses and even rose water as currency. Interestingly, a large portion of modern day roses are descended from a lineage of cultivated roses transported from Asia in the late 18th century and in the 19th century the Empress of France and wife to Napoleon, Josephine who supported the advancement of rose breeding. Her gardens at the grand Château de Malmaison served as the breeding grounds. By the end of the 20th century, over 10,000 hybrids had been successfully bred. As popular as ever, after thousands of years of selective breeding, cultivation and mutation the modern rose is still prized for its abundance, accessibility, beauty, colors, hardiness, and symbolism. From birthdays to weddings, from Mother's Day to Valentine's Day; the roses is a flower that's significance can neither be over nor understated.
