Celebrate National Rose Month and Red Rose Day

Even though roses make the perfect gift for anyone celebrating a special occasion or simply as a token of love or friendship at any time of the year, they are especially popular in the month of June in honor of National Rose Month. In addition to this month falling in their peak growing season, National Rose Month is celebrated in June due to this bloom being a (synonym for popular) choice for June wedding bouquets. Also appearing on the calendar in June is National Red Rose Day, which is recognized annually on June 12th.

History of National Rose Month

Celebrating National Rose Month in June began in 1959 when it was first observed in conjunction with the official naming of the United States national flower. Arlene Hennessey was the first to be crowned “Rose Queen” that year during the festivities. However, in 1986 under President Ronald Reagan, the bill was finally passed, and the rose has since been the national flower of the United States.

Why We Love Roses

Referenced in music, art, and literature for centuries, roses are said to be one of the oldest flowers in the world. While most artists reference the rose’s romantic beauty and alluring passion, these flowers are also connected to grace, elegance, friendship, cheer, enthusiasm, and more based on the color and hue of their petals. White roses are especially treasured as a symbol of purity and innocence and are often seen in funeral arrangements as a sign of sympathy.
