ROSE – THE SURVIVOR
Welcome to the World of Rose Gardening or Rose Gardening World. Take time and smell the roses. Roses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states. Here at Rose Gardening World, you’ll find rose articles that will educate you about roses – its history, rose culture, rose profiles and even rose verses all in one place. So visit Rose Gardening World often.
Here is something to think about:
“The history of the rose is as old and almost as complicated as the human race. Types and classes have flourished, scattered and interbred. There are bigger gaps in rose history… longer silences… but roses and man have travelled along thru history on the same broad paths of change, decline and fall. Great men and women have lived and died and recorded themselves in history. What an interesting world it would be if the greatest were still with us, alive and representative of their era… Alas they are gone forever, but the rose, in its infinite variety, still survives, identically as it grew and flowered even before the Christian era.”
