We have wild roses as the floral emblem of Alberta. If you or your wife cuts roses before they wilt to place in a vase, it stimulates the rose bush to produce more flowers. Only hardy roses last for more than one season here in Alberta so I rarely indulge myself by buying tea roses which won't usually survive the winter. When i see roses I think of "The Gulistan" verses.
