Flower Friday: Classic Pink Rose

“Believe it or not, the first trace of the pink rose was found in fossils dating back 40 million years! More recent historical evidence shows pink roses were grown in China’s Imperial rose gardens about 5,000 years ago and they have continued to play a part in history ever since. Horticulturally speaking, pink roses are a classic. They were the first color rose cultivated, since pink roses are most common in the wild. During the Victorian era, the pink rose was used to decorate everything from wallpaper to greeting cards.” (Source)
