The history of flower Roses.

Today, there are more than 30,000 varieties of roses, which are the most complex family tree of any known flowering plant. The cultivation of roses began in Asia some 5,000 years ago. Since then, they have been part of the human experience, referring to the flower to many stories from the ancient world.

Roses of the Ages contain many beautiful stories that we all recognize. Greek mythology tells us that the rose was named after Aphrodite, but was created by the flower goddess Chloris. One day, while cleaning up in the woods, Cloris found a beautiful nymph’s lifeless body. To correct this mistake, Clarice enlists the help of Aphrodite, the goddess of love who gave her beauty; She called Dionysus, the god of wine, and added nectar to.

At the turn of their turn, the three grays gave Cloris a beautiful, bright and cheerful look. The western wind, the Zephyr, clouds the w so that the sun-god Apollo can shine and blossom. In another story, the ancient Hindu mythology Brahma (the creator of the world) and Vishnu (the protector of the world) argued that the lotus is more beautiful than the rose.

While Vishnu supported the rose, Brahma supported the lotus. But Brahma has never seen a rose before. He created a bride called Lakshmi with 108 roses and 1008 small rose petals. Thousands of years later, in Crete, on the other side of the world, there are frescoes. 1700 bc depicting a rose-colored rose with five pedals.

The discovery of tombs in Egypt has garlands made of flowers and roses in them. Wreath of Hawara’s tomb (discovered by English archaeologist William Flinders Petrie) dates back to 170 AD, which represents the oldest preserved record of a still-standing rose species. When the peasants were reduced to growing roses instead of food crops to meet the needs of their rulers, the rose became synonymous with the worst excesses of the Roman Empire.

The emperors filled the rose water in their swimming pools and fountains and sat on the carpets of the rose petals. During the celebrations, the rose was used as a source of spice for medicinal purposes. Heliogabalus enjoyed bathing the guests with rose petals that fell from the ceiling during the festivities.

The rose was used as a symbol of the 15th century by sections fighting to control England. The white rose represented York, and the red rose symbolized the Lancaster. No wonder that the conflict between these factions is known as the Battle of the Roses.

In the 17th century, roses and rose water were considered legal tender because of the high demand for roses. In this capacity, they have been used as barter in the markets, as well as for the payment of royalties to the common man.Napoleon’s wife, Josephine, loved the rose and set up an extensive collection on the estate of the Chോteau de Malmaison, seven miles west of Paris. With over 250 rose species, the garden served as a backdrop for Pierre Joseph Redoute’s work as a botanical illustrator.

Cultivated roses were not introduced to Europe until the end of the eighteenth century. These introductions came from China and were repetitive flowers, which created great interest for hybridizers who did not have to wait once a year for their roses to bloom.

From this introduction, experts today divide all roses into two groups. There are “old roses” (cultivated in Europe before 1800) and “modern roses” (such as those cultivated in England and France in the early 19th century).

Until the early 19th century, all roses in Europe were pink or white. Our romantic symbol of red roses first came from China in the 1800s. Unusual green roses arrived a few decades later.

By 1900, bright yellow roses entered the palette. The discovery was credited to Frenchman Joseph Permet-Dutcher. After more than 20 years of roses breeding in their search for intense yellow varieties, one day, the luck of the field stumbled upon a bright yellow flower. Since then, we have had yellow and orange roses.

Rose is an unusual plant that is known as the world’s favorite flower. No other flower has experienced the same popularity that Rose has enjoyed in the last five years. In temperate climates, roses grow more widely than any other ornamental plant, and as cut flowers, they are an everlasting fashion.

It is estimated that 150 million plants are purchased by gardeners worldwide, and modern breeding programs make the plant one of the dominant in the world’s cut flower market; Annual crop is counted as tonnes. Roses are also a major contributor to the spice industry.

Roses boast an ancient species that is intrinsically linked to our history and culture. As a model, Rose is still depicted in many national symbols. It has been recognized by countless political factions, businesses, and numerous international events. It is no wonder that hobby gardeners around the world appreciate and grow so many beautiful rose varieties.
