Roses have been the official emblem of nations, identified soldiers in battle, and provided oils and perfume for royalty. But the timeless beauty of these iconic flowers is likely best expressed as a gorgeous testament to our affection to those important to us. June is all about celebrating this remarkable flower, as we observe National Rose Month. So whether you opt to send yellow roses to your best friend, pink roses to your daughter, or red roses to your significant other – Mission Viejo Florist has beautiful rose blooms for every occasion.
Having a rose arrangement delivered to someone who means everything to you? A vibrant collection that blends the many colors of summer roses is the perfect gift.
Once only available to royalty, today the rose is for everyone. It occurs in over 150 species, but over the years thousands of hybrids and varieties have been cultivated. This has resulted in vivid colors and remarkably unique and stunning flowers. However, for all the variety which is available, there are two colors of rose which cannot be grown.
As a species, the rose lacks the necessary gene to produce blue pigment. Therefore you will never see a true blue rose – and for the same reasons, a true black rose cannot be cultivated. Although many sell “black roses”, they are in reality a deep shade of dark red.
We give roses to exceptional people in our lives, which is fitting as the rosebush is also a pretty extraordinary plant. A single rose bush can thrive for several hundred years or longer. In fact, there is a rose bush in Hildesheim, Germany, which is estimated to be between 1,000 and 1,200 years old, as proven by the town’s history which spoke of its continuous blooming since AD 815.
So choose their favorite color, and send them a bouquet of roses this month. Mission Viejo Florist is happy to assist you in creating the perfect floral designs and arrangements for all of your special occasions. Just give us a call.
