Wayland Weekly Flower: Red Roses

Red Roses (genus Rosa – probably Hybrid tea) from Post Road Flowers across from the Wayland Post Office.  About 650 million roses are sold in the U.S. every year with 95% of the roses imported from Columbia and Ecuador by being flown into Miami.  Nearly 70% of the 200 million roses produced for the U.S. Valentines Day are red.  Since Greek and Roman times, the red rose has been the ultimate symbol of romantic love.  A dozen or two red roses is always a great gift for that special someone.  However, you might also consider 10 roses to indicate they are perfect, or 7 roses to capture the spirituality and perfection associated with this number.

There are four places to buy flowers in Wayland. The bouquets sold at Stop & Shop and Donelan’s are probably imported as prewrapped bouquets. Those sold at Russell’s and by Jolene at Post Road Flowers are assembled from individual stems.
