Not every flower is remarkable enough to have an entire month dedicated to celebrating it, but the rose is no ordinary flower. June is National Rose Month, and whether classic long-stemmed roses, lavish garden roses, or vivid summer varieties, the rose is in the spotlight this month. The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have created lovely arrangements featuring the rose that we know you will love!

For instance, did you know that although roses currently grow around the world, none of the 150 species originated south of the equator? That’s right – all species of the rose are native to the northern hemisphere. However, in contemporary times they have been successfully cultivated in the southern hemisphere – one incredible example is the land of Zambia, a country in Africa, which is 80% covered in roses!
The rosebush is truly a wonder of nature. This resilient plant has been known to thrive and produce flowers for hundreds of years – in fact, the oldest known rosebush is still flowering after nearly 1,200 years! But aside from its longevity, the rosebush is also quite useful. The rose hip, which is an auxiliary fruit of the rose, surpasses even the orange for its high concentrations of Vitamin C.
For all of its great qualities, however, most of us just love having this beautiful and elegant flower in our homes and offices!
