Rose flowers are the blossoms of the rose bush, which is a flowering shrub. This shrub is amongst the most popular garden plants in the entire world, with countless cultivated variants sporting colors across the spectrum and beyond. Both the regal appearance and heavenly fragrance of rose flowers has led to this popularity. The status of this plant as a champion of nature is not one that will soon fade away.
The interesting thing about rose flowers is that the plants are capable of reaching incredible size and height. It accomplishes this by climbing and creeping up other nearby plants, trees, lattices and even structure walls. It does this with the spiny protrusions sticking out of the stems at all angles. Although these are commonly called thorns, they are technically referred to as “prickles.”
