Perpetual Petals: A Brief History of Roses

A rose by any other name…might still be a rose! With thou­sands of vari­eties and hybrid vari­eties boast­ing a spec­trum of col­ors and scents, it is no won­der roses have cap­ti­vated gar­den­ers and inspired artists for centuries.

Par­tially inspired by Empress Josephine Bonaparte’s exten­sive col­lec­tion of 250 species, rose gar­dens grew in pop­u­lar­ity through­out the 19th cen­tury, reach­ing its zenith in Vic­to­rian Eng­land and the United States in the lat­ter half of the nine­teenth cen­tury. The old­est sin­gle plant hor­ti­cul­tural soci­ety in Amer­ica, the Amer­i­can Rose Soci­ety was founded dur­ing this time in 1892. Out of the nearly 3,000 vari­eties hybridized dur­ing this golden age, we have only about 100 left, and only about 50 vari­eties are com­mer­cially avail­able today.
