June is National Rose Month

by webdev

June 14, 2011

When it comes to flowers, roses are among the most popular types of blooms.

In fact, in November 1986, President Ronald Reagan declared the rose to be the National Floral Emblem of the United States of America.

These beautiful and fragrant flowers are in full bloom during the month of June, which has been designated as National Rose Month.

Many who love roses often choose to grow them in their own gardens and can cut them to arrange and display indoors when desired. Perhaps others will try planting a rose bush or two at their homes in honor of National Rose Month.

Purchasing a rose bouquet for yourself or sending roses to someone else is another way to celebrate the rose season.

Whether you choose for an all-rose arrangement or mixed flowers that includes roses, the options are varied. Roses come in many different varieties and colors, which symbolize different emotions.

Red roses, for instance, are a symbol of passion and love and are ideal to send to a husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend.

Those sending flowers to a friend may choose yellow roses to symbolize joy and friendship.

White roses symbolize loyalty and innocence, which is why they are often chosen for weddings.
