The Rose has been a symbolic gesture of love and beauty since the ancient Greeks and Romans identified the rose with the goddess of love.

Many of the experts are predicting consumer spending will be up for Valentine's Day 2014, though traditionally when Valentine's day is on a Friday or Saturday many couples leave for a romantic weekend and flower purchases are down but I'm not seeing that trend at all this season, our sales are up and the entire industry seems to be doing very well.

Friday's Flower - Red Roses

Posted by Jeffrey Camarda on
Friday's Flower Of The Day: Red Roses.
With Valentine's Day upon us I thought Roses, specifically Red Roses would be a good choice.

A rose is a woody perennial of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae. There are over 100 species. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy, in colours ranging from white through yellows and reds. Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. Species, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and often are fragrant. Rose plants range in size from compact, miniature roses, to climbers that can reach 7 meters in height. Different species hybridize easily, and this has been used in the development of the wide range of garden roses.

The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin rosa, which was perhaps borrowed from Oscan, from Greek ρόδον rhódon (Aeolic βρόδον wródon), itself borrowed from Old Persian wrd- (wurdi), related to Avestan varəδa, Sogdian ward, Parthian wâr.
