A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Those are the words of William Shakespeare from his play, "Romeo and Juliet". These words from Shakespeare tells the world that a rose is a very special flower.
When we think of roses, we think of a long stem red rose. However, roses come in a number of different colors and forms. Roses are grown in a variety of colors, each with a perceived different meaning. For example, red roses can represent love, white roses can represent purity, yellow roses can represent platonic friendship, pink roses can represent admiration and orange roses can represent desire.
Roses have a long history and fossils can date back as far as 35 million years ago. Over time nearly 150 species of roses have been discovered, mostly in North America. During the course of time, as mentioned previously, roses have taken on different meanings, and have been a choice of gift giving occasions. And it will continue to be a very popular gift for many years to come.
