Single White Rose

Friday, February 14th, 2014

One single, white rose Among so many red
Individual, genuine beauty, an outcast.
Could it be purer than the rest?

Its ivory surface looks strange
Among the crimson-stained flowers
Its crisp clean smell enchants.

By any other name–we know
It would smell as sweet
But by any other color, it would not be so alluring.

Not RED
Not stained with the savageness of love
Not apologetic, troubled, withered yellow.

But white–chaste, pure untouched ivory
Its petals will not wither, will not fall
An outcast among SO MANY red
an outcast among all the rest
It will outlive them all.

Roses – A Flower of Many Flavors

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

When most of think about the Rose, we normally think in terms of colors or, maybe, differentiate based on use (garden roses, ornamental roses, cut roses, etc.).

Bur roses have a lot more up their leaves – I mean – sleeve. 😉

Scientifically, roses are woody perennials of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae. They can also be classified according species (more than 100), cultivars and hybrids. Then, if you wish, you can distinguish between them according to size and type, such as mini and compact roses, shrubs, climbers, ornamentals, cut flowers, etc. And, apart from enjoying their splendor, roses are also used for perfume, food, drink and – even – medicine.

Others, like the American Rose Society, firstly classifies roses into three main types: Species Roses (“wild roses”), Old Garden Roses (pre-1867), and Modern Roses (since 1867). The last two types are deemed to be hybrids of (i.e. derived from) wild roses. Once a rose has been typecast according to the aforesaid system, rose enthusiasts typically proceed to categorize them according to criteria such as blooming characteristics, scent, size, color, growth habits, ancestry, date of introduction,etc., etc.
