It is mainly cultivated in greenhouses because it is a very sensitive plant to low temperatures, especially at night.
The cultivated roses are all hybrids, that is to say the result of various crossings that occurred especially between European roses, among which Rosehip and roses of the Far East among which we remember the Multiflora rose.

THE ROSE SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF AN ARTIST
I love this flower. It represents for me a timeless beauty. The two opposites of femininity, beauty and difficulty. Even in the very execution of a work that portrays roses, various difficulties arise, due to technique and color; each squad, like women, differentiates between peers for many characteristics, so every time the work begins, it is always like the first one.
