National Red Rose Day
Each year on June 12th, people in the United States recognize National Red Rose Day. It honors the flower that is a symbol of love and romance, the red rose. The June birth flower is also the rose.
Red roses were used in many early cultures as decorations in wedding ceremonies and wedding attire. It was through this practice that, over the years, the red rose became known as a symbol of love and romance. The tradition of giving red roses as the strongest message of love is still practiced today.
Red roses offer more than the message of love. They are also known for their fragrance and are cultivated for perfumes as well as brewing healing teas. They also come in a wide variety of cultivars. From low growing shrubs with dainty blossoms to long-stemmed robust plants, roses offer deep scarlet’s and bright berry colored reds.
In June, red roses are in bloom in flower gardens across the United States, and their beauty and sweet scent fill the air with happiness.
