ETYM as. rose, Latin rosa: cf. French rose, from the Latin.
Any shrub or climber of the genus Rosa, family Rosaceae, with prickly stems and fragrant flowers in many different colors. Numerous cultivated forms have been derived from the Eurasian sweetbrier or eglantine r. rubiginosa and dogrose r. canina. There are many climbing varieties, but the forms more commonly cultivated are bush roses and standards (cultivated roses grafted on to a briar stem).
Thousands of new rose varieties are created every year by fertilizing a particular plant with pollen from another desirable plant, and growing the resultant seeds. When the young plant produces buds they are removed and grafted on to disease-resistant rootstock. Only a small proportion of new varieties produced by growers are introduced to the market.
