June is National Rose Month. Roses have a long and colorful history. They have been symbols of love, beauty, war and politics. Because they hold a special place in our hearts and country’s history, roses have earned many honors other flowers can only dream about.      

Roses in American History

  • As the most popular flower in America (and the world, for that matter), it’s no surprise that roses made their way into the most famous house in America — the White House.
  • On November 20, 1986, President Ronald Reagan declared the rose the national floral emblem of the United States while standing in the White House Rose Garden.
  • The rose is also the state flower for North Dakota, Georgia, Oklahoma, New York and Iowa.
  • The White House Rose Garden was started in 1913 by First Lady Ellen Wilson.
  • Presidents still use the White House Rose Garden as the location for bill signings, press conferences, and diplomatic meetings.
  • It’s believed that George Washington was one of the first American rose breeders.

Order beautiful roses for someone special!
