Romancing the Rose

Who Doesn't Love a Red Rose?

Some Interesting Trivia about Red Roses:

  • Cleopatra used the red rose to carpet her bedroom when she entertained Marc Antony. With the intent that every time he would smell roses he would think of  her
  • In the 18th century roses were used as a romantic form of communication between forbidden secret lovers
  • The Red Rose symbolizes true love that is stronger than thorns and eternal
  • In Christianity the rose became identified with the Virgin Mary. The rose symbol eventually led to the creation of the rosary prayers & rosary beads
  • The Mexican city of Guadalajara, the capital of Jalisco is nicknamed the "City of Roses"
  • In an Arabic legend, all roses were originally white until one night when the nightingale met a beautiful white rose and fell in love. At this stage nightingales were not known for their melodious song they merely croaked and chirped like any other bird. But now the nightingale's love was so intense that he was inspired to sing for the first time. Eventually his love was such that he pressed himself to the flower and the thorns pierced his heart, coloring the rose red forever
  • Garden cultivation of roses began some 5,000 years ago in China. During the Roman period, roses were grown extensively in the Middle East. They were used as confetti at celebrations, for medicinal purposes, and as a source of perfume.
