“Red Rose Day is a time to enjoy and appreciate America’s favorite flower…..the red rose. A red rose signifies love. A June setting for Red Rose Day is very appropriate, as this is by far the most popular month for weddings. And, they are in bloom in the gardens across America this month.
In addition to being the most popular cut flower, roses are also the most popular flower in flower beds and around foundation of houses, garages and sheds. They are easy to grow, producing a bounty of sweet scented flowers from June up to the first frost.
The Origin of Red Rose Day:
The date for this special day is all over the map (errr, calendar). June 12th is by far the most common date for this day. And, it’s logical, as roses are in full bloom in June.
We did not find any information on the creation of this day in the U.S. This holiday may have been imported from Australia. The Cystic Fibrosis foundation in Australia holds a Red Rose Day and Week. The day varies each year.
