The rose, through its wide range of colours and scents, has always been one of the most appreciated flowers, also being nicknamed the “Queen of Flowers”. Roses are indispensable in the decor of most parks. Roses attract by the tenderness of the flowers and the colour of the petals, but also by the varied perfume with aromas from fruits to spices; it is known that the moment someone receives a flower, she instinctively smells it. Roses have occupied and still occupy an important place in any landscaping design.
