The History of the Rose and Its Meanings
Roses are among the oldest of cultivated flowers, with the first known to have grown in Asian gardens 5,000 years ago. In its untamed form the flowers go back even further, fossils of wild roses date back 35 million years. It seems the appeal of the rose has stood the test of time. The ancients explained the beauty of the rose through myths of godly creation. The Greek goddess Chloris stumbled upon a beautiful dead nymph and turned her into a flower, Aphrodite added beauty, the three Graces added brilliance, joy and charm, Dionysius donated fragrant nectar, while Zephyrus, the West wind, blew away the clouds so Apollo could shower the rose in the sun. The flower was then given to Eros, the deity of love, and the "Queen" of the flowers was born.
The Romans had their own ideas on the rose's origin. According to their legend, many suitors were lined up to marry a beautiful woman named Rodanthe, but she had little interest in any of them. These men were so full of love and desire that they became rowdy and eventually broke down the doors to Rodanthe's house. This episode angered the goddess Diana, who turned the woman into a flower and her suitors into thorns to teach them a lesson.
Whatever its origin, the rose is undeniably the best-known symbol of beauty and love. It is common knowledge that red roses mean "I love you." A dozen of them make the ultimate statement of love. Lesser-known nuances of meaning are attached to different colors and types of roses. Red and white together mean unity, pink means grace and gentility, yellow symbolizes joy, coral roses speak to your desire, while white roses mean you are heavenly.
