Feel The Love Two Dozen Roses
National Rose Month
In 1959 National Rose Month was first observed. Arlene Hennessey from New Jersey was crowned the first Rose Queen. Lobbying efforts continued to make the rose the national flower. Then in 1986 President Ronald Reagan made roses the national flowers.
Roses hold such a special place in our hearts and are used so often to honor numerous occasions. If you have ever paused as they say to “stop and smell the roses”, they truly have such a pleasant fragrance. And are so elegant.
One of the most common roles roses play is a representation of deep love and admiration. Every year there are an estimated 110 million roses sold on Valentine’s Day. That is just one of the many occasions for Roses. Anniversaries, Weddings, Funerals and simply because are other occasions when roses are selected as a gift. Going back in history to the Renaissance period, you will find that roses were sent to be secret and romantic messages between lovers.
Roses have been used in films and stories and have one more awards than any other flower. The movie American Beauty featured the rose as the main theme and then in the film Beauty and the Beast, the rose was a main symbol of love. The rose is the most popular flower in America and the world. For that reason you will also find roses adorning the US White House.
In addition some other interesting facts are that the rose is the state flower for North Dakota, Georgia, Oklahoma, New York and Iowa. First Lady Ellen Wilson started The White House Rose Garden in 1913. To this day the garden is used by the Presidents as the location for bill signings, press conferences, and diplomatic meetings. Finally historians believe that George Washington was one of the first American rose breeders.
There are 150 plus species of the rose in North America and other continents. In the United states you can find wild and domesticated roses. Of the five states that call the rose their state flower, New York honors any color or combination, North Dakota and Iowa refer to the Prairie Rose as their state flower, Georgia claims the Cherokee Rose and finally Oklahoma refers to the rose as its namesake.
