There are various symbols that come to mind when speaking of the Fourth of July. Fireworks, the American flag, a bald eagle, the White House and the Statue of Liberty are some of the most common ones. But do you ever think of a beautiful rose?
According to the National Rose Garden, the rose is the national flower of the U.S. It was declared the country’s official floral emblem in 1985, and a year later, former President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation to certify the rose as the national flower. This gorgeous symbol soon inspired the White House Rose Garden, and to this day, roses continue to fill the space between the Oval Office and the West Wing.
This Independence Day, why not show your love and admiration for America by filling your home with dozens of gorgeous roses? Here are a few of Teleflora’s best patriotic rose bouquets, perfect for the national holiday:
