All About Roses

Who hasn't heard of the most popular flowering plant of all time, the rose?  The rose plant can spark a quick conversation amongst even the shyest of persons.  Almost anyone can tell you of someone they know who has grown beautiful roses or of someone who couldn't.  Almost anyone can tell you of someone who got or sent roses, especially around the holidays.  Even little children know what the rose plant is.

The local florist most likely has dozens of colors, types, and sizes of rose plants.  It would seem to be the best selling flower of all time.  The local discount store and even the local grocer carries some sort of rose plant these days.  In my opinion, the best rose is one that has a strong scent.  A rose has a most distinct smell, and a scent welcome to most anyone.  The fragrance is like no other and has been reproduced in perfumes and air fresheners for years.  There are rose-scented oils and lotions, bath products.  There are rose colors and rose images galore.  You can find rose parades and people named Rose.  You can even coming out 'smelling like a rose".  All because of a mere plant that reached enormous proportions of popularity.

The rose plant is available in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and types.  It is known worldwide.  The prices vary depending on where you buy or what type and size you want.

Do you want a rose plant already started in a pot?  You may have to repot it.  Make sure you do your homework before you buy one.

When you decide what type of rose plant you'd like, think of placement.  There is a plant called the thornless rose plant that will grow in the shade.  But most rose plants are known to have thorns, so you wouldn't want your small child or grandchild or frequent tiny visitors to happen upon something that is so pretty that they can't resist grabbing and end up with an unwelcome handful of thorns.  It may even sour them on the enjoyment of the rose plant for life because of a tearful memory.  And roses are too beautiful to allow such a thing!

There are climbing rose plants which you most certainly wouldn't want trailing across the ground to be stomped by animals or other foot traffic.  Some roses are delicate and unfiltered light would cook their leaves to an unwelcome brown.  If your rose plant is the type that grows into a bush, you would want to place it in a spot that allows for it to spread. Rose plants carry so many different names, it's probably enough to fill a small book!  Some of the names include Rose Blaze, Rose Red Eden, Rose New Dawn, Rose Neptune, Rose Zephirine, just to name a very few.  If you want a rose that sounds like it belongs in a class all its own, you could buy a Rose Paris D'Yves St. Laurent!  That's a mouthful!  Happy Hunting!

The Rose: As a Symbol

In the Greco-Roman culture, the rose represented beauty, love and the season of spring.  It also spoke of the fleetness of time, and therefore implied death and the next world.

In Latin Christian iconography, the first use of the rose appears in the scenes representing the next world. Also used were the lily and other flowers.  These flowers also became symbols of virtues and of categories of the elect.  The red rose represented the martyrs, and the lily, for the virgins. The rose as the queen of flowers, was evidently a privileged symbol for Mary.  She is called a rose among the thorns. The rose is also a symbol of Christ who is called the Rose of Sharon. Wonderful examples of this symbolism are found in the gothic cathedrals and their rose windows. These circular stained glass windows enhance the three entrances of these churches. These immense roses symbolize the world of salvation offered and revealed by God to our lost human race through the old and New Testaments. Christ, at the center of these rose windows, appears usually as judge or in the mystery of his Incarnation. In the latter example we see Mary presenting the Child Jesus.  During the Middle Ages the theme of the rose garden developed from the symbolism of the rose in the literature of courtly love.

In the literatures of these times the rose was the symbol of the beloved lady. Later the influence of the Song of Songs led to the rose symbolizing the mystical union between Christ and his Church or between God and each member of his people.  Mary was honored as the model of our union with God. The rose then became a symbol of the union between Christ and Mary thus titled the Mystical Rose in many writings. Marian symbolism of the rose was later popularized by the devotion of the rosary. The structured prayer form of 150 Hail Mary's was termed a rosary.  Here, with the religious,
