Roses are ancient symbols of love and beauty. 'Rose' means pink or red in a variety of languages (such as Romance languages Greek and Polish). The rose was sacred to a number of goddesses (including Isis and Aphrodite) and is often used as a symbol of the Virgin Mary. The ancient Greeks and Romans identified the rose with their goddesses of love referred to as Aphrodite and Venus. In Rome a wild rose would be placed on the door of a room where secret or confidential matters were discussed. The phrase sub rosa or "under the rose" means to keep a secret & dash; derived from this ancient Roman practice. Package includes: 1x pack (10pcs rose seeds inside).
