Think you know all you need to know about roses? It’s estimated there are between 100 and 150 varieties of roses, although the exact number is unknown, as many of the varieties are so similar. It is thought the cultivated rose originated from Northern Persia, however, roses are now grown around the world, with many hybrids having been created over the years. The first hybrid was created in 1867 by Jean-Baptiste Guillot. All roses grown before that date are now known as Old Garden Roses, while roses identified after that date are known as New Garden Roses.
Roses not only look beautiful, they are also long-lasting, making them a wonderful choice for cut-flower arrangements. Simply trim the stems and any foliage below the water line, and place in a vase of warm water with cut-flower food. Display your arrangement in a cool place, out of direct sunlight, and change the water every few days. Now, enjoy!
