For a week, maybe ten days, if not exhausted imagination. World Rose Garden Nikita is huge - about 1,000 varieties, but also those that are exposed, and they, according to my calculations, about one hundred and fifty, that's enough to tell people about these amazing colors indefinitely.

Having learned its unique aroma, Europe has become to cultivate roses.

The appearance of a red rose tells a few myths. After all, wild rose hips, which marked the beginning the whole manifold cultivars have white or pinkish petals. According to one myth, the goddess of love Aphrodite was walking one day and accidentally stepped on a spike of white roses, creeping along the ground. A drop of blood fell to the goddess of flower petals and painted it red. According to another version, Cupid, having fun, shed a drop of red wine on white petals. Thus was born the red rose.
