Did you think about the semantics of the rose?
Let’s start from the beginning. The name of the rose itself derives from Old Persian and was translated into Latin as pink accepted. The roses belong to the genus of the rose family. There are about 250 species of this flower known. This royal plant has been bred for more than 2000 years as an ornamental plant.
From its petals, the precious rose oil is extracted, which is considered one of the most important raw materials of the perfume industry. In principle, the roses are shrubs. Some of them are compact and small, while others are tall or creepers. The flowers are usually fünfzählig. Roses mainly love calcareous soils. The stem types of most cultivated roses originate in Central and Southwest Asia. Today, areas in Central Europe, such as the Swiss Jura and the Alpine valleys such as Veltlin and Lower Engadin, are considered very rich in roses.
