The meanings of the white rose in myths and legends are aplenty. According to Greek mythology, all roses were originally white in color. It then magically developed in other colors, tones, and hues. When Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, was pricked by its thorn, her blooded dripped on the white petals, turning them red. When a beautiful maid kissed it lovingly, it blushed, and turned pink. Hence, these myths and legends point towards the loss of innocence. As a result, this white variety stands for innocence and purity.
Commonly called Coneflowers, this genus is known by the name Echinacea (derived from Greek echino meaning sea urchin). It blooms for 2 - 3 months, usually from early to late summer. Its amazing color serves as an excellent addition to any garden. Apart from flamboyant blooms, the plant is extremely drought-tolerant. It grows best in a well-drained soil, and areas that receive full sunlight. This genus is endemic to central and eastern North America.
In many ways, the rose flower is different from that of a standard bloom. The rose flower possesses several ovaries as opposed to the single one of standard blooms. Ovaries are positioned in a cup-like structure called hypanthium. Leaves of the rose plants are borne alternately on stems. These 5-15 cm long leaves possess a serrate margin. The petals of rose flowers are typically five in number. However, the hybrid ones have a greater number of petals. With the male and female reproductive parts present in the same flower, it is amongst the perfect flowers.
