The garden rose has a long and colourful history. The flower has been depicted as a symbol of love, beauty, war, and politics. Rose cultivation probably began about 5,000 years ago in China. During the Roman period, roses were also grown extensively across the Middle East. They were used as confetti at celebrations, for medicinal purposes, and as a source of perfume. Roman nobility established large public rose gardens in the south of Rome. Roses are enjoying a resurgence in popularity once again, and there are over 30,000 varieties of them in cultivation worldwide today.
