Every year, National Rose Month falls during the month of June; and this June we want to take the time to observe this special time. Roses are one of the most popular, recognizable, and meaningful flowers. They represent love and affection, they were coveted by Royals, and even served as an emblem during wartimes. While they have soft, delicate petals, they’re thorny and stiff stems led them to serve as protective barriers. Rose hedges have been used in the past and present as a way to protect landscaping, houses, and more.
