Herb of the Year - Rose
No flower has stirred the imagination and passion of poets and romantics quite like the rose. Going back to at least the 28th century BC! when it was first cultivated in China, the rose has figured prominently in the art, culture, medicine, and food of the great civilizations of Asia, Africa and Europe. There are countless myths and legends intertwined with the gods, king and queens, as well as saints. The rose is a symbol of women and love, and of compassion, friendship, and honour; as Charlemagne decreed , it ought to grow in every garden. Modern hybrids are generaly lacking of much scent, and are not much use for potpurris, toileteries, and perfumes, so the old fashioned fragrant varieties are coming back.
