A rose blooming right before the first snow, very atypical. And a Yellow Rose at that. Long associated with the sun and its life giving warmth, the Yellow Rose is a perfect gift for the special friend. By the 18th century the worldwide love of roses was in full swing, but they were only cultivated in shades of pink and white. At last, the elusive yellow rose was discovered growing wild in the Middle East, and the love affair with yellow roses was born. The early yellow rose lacked the sweet scent for which the rose is famous, however, which was not to be tolerated. So, as cultivation methods were developed and refined, the beloved sweet and spicy rose scent was soon introduced and the yellow rose achieved all its optimistic and aromatic glory.
