History: We find the word rosa comes from the Greek word rodon (red). The history of the rose is as long as human history itself. Homer's has allusions to it in the
" Iliad and Odyssey" and there are also refernces to it in the bible "the rose of Jerico". In England the` ancient and well known "Order of the Rose" is one of several orders with the word used in the title.
