Many times, the desire for wonderfully fragrant roses is the precise reason why people decide to plant roses and get into rose gardening.
Is this true of you? I know it was of me. I just loved the scent of roses. Fresh, enticing… what more can I say? except plant roses, and then plant roses some more.
The rose attracts some people to it for its unique shape. But you’ve got to admit, most people are attracted primarily for its smell, which is why so many people plant roses.
It’s as much the fragrance as the tradition that drives women to request roses for birthdays, Valentine’s Day, or anniversaries.
In fact, fragrant roses are a fantastic way to say “I love you,” and “I think you’re as sweet and as wonderful as the rose is.” That is pretty sweet and wonderful and how marvelous to think that you’re as grand as the picturesque rose! We all want and need to feel that special.
