Roses originated in China, but have been cultivated and hybridized throughout the world for hundreds of years.  The flowers are available in almost every color except blue and true black.  Rose plants were introduced to Europe from the Middle East during the Crusades and were prized by monks for their medicinal value.  Roses are generally classified by their flower size:  Standard roses (single, large flower on long [60cm+] or medium [40-50cm] stems), Sweetheart roses (miniature flowers on medium [40cm+] stems), and Spray Roses (multiple miniature flowers on a single medium [40cm+] stem).
