What do you think of when you hear “roses” ?
Although many automatically think of the long-stemmed red variety, popularized on Valentine’s Day – there are actually over 150 species of roses, and literally thousands of cultivars in existence. Roses have been beloved for all of history – adored by royalty, coveted by the socially elite. Roses have been the emblem for soldiers at war, and become the symbol for romance and true love. This incredible bloom can live and thrive for many centuries, grow to immense size, and still manage to make your sweetheart blush. June is National Rose Month, and it is the ideal opportunity to not only learn a few fun facts about this flower, but to have some roses delivered to someone you love.

Like every flower, the color of the rose you choose to send has significance. Red roses, of course, denote passionate and romantic love; while yellow roses stand for friendship. The orange rose – the bridge between red and yellow – is said to indicate fascination and infatuation with someone. Pink roses are considered to represent a “sweet” and innocent relationship, such as between a parent and child. Pink is also indicative of gratitude and appreciation.
The rosebush is remarkably strong and hardy plant. The worlds oldest rosebush is thought to be nearly 1,200 years old, with records of its existence going back to 815 AD. And if that isn’t amazing enough, consider the size of a rosebush in Tombstone, Arizona. This single bush exhibits over 200,000 blooms in season, and is supported by an arbor your can walk under!
Whether to express true love, convey feelings of friendship or thankfulness or simply to say hello – this is the perfect time to send roses! June is National Rose Month, and Griffin’s Floral Design looks forward to creating the perfect rose arrangement for you.
