Every Wild Rose has a Story...

Wild Rose Tree Meaning

In Ancient mythology the Wild Rose is a powerful symbol of love and adoration. It is strongly associated with Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of beauty and love, who is often portrayed with a crown of roses around her head.
In addition, the rose is a symbolic carrier of secrets. The term 'sub rosa' comes from the tradition of hanging wild roses above meeting places and tables in the Roman era. It is understood that anything said ‘under the rose’ will never be spoken of or repeated elsewhere.
Greek mythology also tells the story of the legendary wedding between Psyche, the goddess of Soul and Eros, the god of Love. Following the romantic match, the entire Earth was a-glow with roses scattered by the three Graces to celebrate the eternal union of love.

The beautiful Wild Rose (Rosa rugosa) grows with an abundance of fresh, spring leaves which unfurl from its stem and thorny branches. Its sweet-scented, deep-pink roses blossom all summer and are loved by bees and butterflies.
