The rose called the flower of love is one of the most popular and oldest flowers known to man. The word rose has come from the Latin word rosa meaning red and has been a symbol of love since ancient times. Nebuchadnezzar used roses to adorn his palace; Persian used roses for perfume oil and to fill the Sultan’s mattress. And in Kashmir, the Mughal emperors cultured rose gardens and rivers were strewn with rose petals to welcome them on their return from wars.
The rose was created by Chloris, the Greek goddess of flowers. One day she found a lifeless body of a nymph in the woods. She asked for the help of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who gave her beauty; Dionysus, the god of wine, bestowed nectar to give her a sweet scent, and the three Graces gave her charm, brightness and joy. Then the West Wind, Zephyr blew the clouds away and the Sun god Apollo shone upon her, making the Rose bloom.
