The Rose originated in Europe and Asia, and its bush can grow up to anywhere from 20 centimeters (8 inches) to many meters high, with species that include rose bushes, shrubs, saplings, and climbing roses; the flowers grow in bunches or alone, single or double. The name, according to some, is derived from the Sanscrit word ‘vrad’ or ‘vrod’, which means flexibility. According to others, however, the name is derived from the Celtic word ‘rhood’ or ‘rhuud’, which means red.

Roses are often used as ornamental plants in gardens, adding accents of color in bright hues and with a prolonged flowering period for those roses that are potted and displayed on terraces or in rock gardens.
