A rose is a woody perennial of genus Rosa. Two centuries of breeding and hybridizing have
served to produce many thousands of rose species and cultivars, each with a unique mix of characteristics. All roses have a flower head that is round in shape and is symmetrical across its face and down its vertical axis. The flower emanates from a central ovary the sits at the center of the bloom under the petals and between the green downward
pointing sepals. The petals, no matter the number, distribute themselves evenly
around the central ovary, anthers and stamens.
