2) The Rose Bowl Parade started as a procession of flower-covered carriages in 1890 as a celebration of California’s mild winter climate.

3) The fruit of a rose plant is known as rose hip and is a good source of vitamin C.

4) There are about 100 species of roses—which vary in color, shape, and climate preference—but hybrid tea roses are the most common.

5) Wondering which color to give in your next bouquet? Red roses signify "love," pink ones "grace," peach "modesty," yellow “friendship,” and orange "fascination."
