Rose is the national flower of United States.

The rose was designated the official flower of the United States of America in 1986.

The rose is a symbol of love and beauty (as well as war and politics) the world over. Each of the 50 states has also adopted an official state flower, including the rose in New York, the Oklahoma rose in Oklahoma, the Cherokee rose in Georgia, and the wild prairie rose in Iowa and North Dakota.

The rose has been around for about 35 million years and grows naturally throughout North America.  Roses are red, pink, white, or yellow and can have a wonderfully rich aroma.  The petals and rose hips are edible and have been used in medicines since ancient times.  Rose hips (the fruit of the rose which forms at base of the flower) are eaten in winter by wild birds and other animals.
