This is The 3D RadioActivity number 305, and on this episode we will play songs about one of the most popular flowers in the world. It has been a symbol of beauty, war and even politics from way back in time. The variety, color and even number can carry symbolic meanings, and is known as the flower of love, particularly Red ones. The birthplace of the cultivated type was probably Northern Persia, while the oldest fossils have been found in Colorado, dating back to more than 35 million years ago. Around 500 BC, Confucius reported that the Imperial Chinese library had many books on them, and The Ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia mentioned them on a cuneiform tablet more than 2,000 years before that. The reason for it’s fame may be its wide variety in terms of color, size, fragrance and other attributes, a broad mix which include the following types: Climbing, Floribunda, Grandiflora, Hybrid, Tea, Polyanthas, Miniatures, Shrubs, Climbers, and Old Garden varieties. Stick around as we stop to smell the roses.
