Are Pink Roses Natural?

by articlebd

Pink roses are one of the most popular kinds of roses (Rosa spp.). They are easily recognizable by their unique beautiful shape and scent. Roses have soft and smooth petals that sometimes come in two sets. The petals appear in a variety of forms, ranging from pointed to rounded, depending on the type. The number of petals varies as well, some only have a few, and others have many petals that overlap to give the appearance of a layered rose. There are straight petals and curled petals, facing up or facing down. There are also a variety of sizes available, ranging from tiny roses to bigger kinds and climbers. They can grow as shrubs or as climbing plants.

Where the Pink Roses Come From?

Roses have been grown for centuries and have a rich history dating back thousands of years. According to fossil evidence, roses have been around for around 35 million years. For the past 5 centuries, they have been actively farmed in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.

Before spreading around the world, roses were first cultivated in around 500 B.C in China. Rosa gallica is known as one of the species grown at the time. Pink Damask rose, the hybrid of Rosa gallica and Rosa moschata, was also very popular during the time.

Until now, some of the species of the wild Rosa genus have never been hybridized by humans. For example Rosa woodsii, Rosa california, Rosa palustris, Rosa nutkana, and Rosa carolina. All of them are pink roses. So we can assume that pink is the most natural color of roses.

There are now over 2500 different Rose varieties. Every year, the quantity of new species introduced to the market keeps going up. Roses are (and continue to be) popular. This is why there are so many funds available for breeding. From white through yellow, pink, purple, orange, and, of course, red, the color palette is extensive. There are also a variety of bi- and tri-colored variations. When breeders blend parent roses to bring interesting coloring in the offspring’s flower petals, they broaden the natural range of rose-color possibilities.
