The Lady Banks' rose (Rosa banksiae normalis) was first cultivated during the late 18th century. The plant is a native of China, where it is found growing on altitudes as high as 500-2000 m above sea level. It is named after the wife of one of the members of the Captain Cook expedition, Sir Joseph Banks, who was a botanist. There are two different types of Lady Banks' rose: white and yellow. The Lady Banks' rose blooms in clusters and the white variety (Rosa banksiae banksiae) is double-flowered. Later, Rosa banksiae lutescens, a double-flowered yellow variety, was also found.

The purple rose with its elegant color and amazing fragrance has captured the hearts of millions of people. Like every rose, they have different meanings. As the red roses symbolize the emotion of love, the purple rose stands for love at first sight. Its beauty is enchanting and enthralling, and in the same way this magnificent flower is given to that person who is as beautiful and irresistible as the rose. Receiving it from a person means that he / she has fallen head over heels in love with the receiver. The rose expresses fascination and attraction towards an individual. However, it is said that attraction can be just an infatuation if the rose is of light purple color. In this case, the feeling is not that of permanent or long-lasting love. On the other hand, the dark purple rose symbolizes deep rooted and intimate relationships. It represents love that is true and would stay forever. Hence, they are given as gifts and used as decorations for weddings and also for anniversaries.
