Red rose bushes are amoung the most popular color planted in gardens. They are very vibrant and attention getting. When planted along side yellow or white flowers they become even more stunning in the garden.
A legend about the red rose
In ancient Greece and Rome, it
was believed that all roses were white....until Venus (the godess of
love) pricked her foot on a rose thorn as she hurried to save her
imperiled lover. Her sacred blood dripped on the petals of the rose, and
dyed it forever red.
If you know the meaning of rose colors, you know that sending roses that are red to someone, symbolizes "I love you". Valentines Day, Birthdays, Anniversary, or any special occassion, calls for a bouquet of a dozen of them! More often than not, if someone gives only one rose, it will be a single red one.
