Throughout history, roses or bouquet of roses have been a popular flower for a range of uses. Since ancient civilizations including the Greeks, Romans, and Persians, roses have been bred to be colorful, fragrant, and hearty for thousands of years. Rose petals were used for confetti at celebrations, in medicine, and as a perfume source. Later on, roses became so widely used that English royalty considered roses and rose water as legal tender.
