Rosaprima - Rose Stories: National Red Rose Day

National Red Rose Day

National Red Rose Day Rosaprima Roses

For at least the past decade, National Red Rose Day has been celebrated in the United States on June 12th. Although we are not sure of the origins of this day, this year we wanted to join in and celebrate the marvel of red roses! They are, after all, one of our specialties! 

One of the most beloved flowers around the world, red roses are admired for their elegance and timeless beauty. They represent love and romance, but can also convey other powerful emotions such as respect, gratitude, admiration, and courage. This “National Red Rose Day” we looked at our collection of red varieties and came up with our top five favorite reds for this year, each wonderful in its own way. 

RP Black Pearl

This deep, crimson red rose, grown and found only at Rosaprima is one of our most sought-after roses. Its soft velvety petals wrapped around its core in a classic swirl makes it an iconic rose for any occasion. Winner of multiple awards including the highly coveted “Best in Class” distinction for the category of a rose at the 2016 SAF Convention, RP Black Pearl is definitely a show-stopper!
