Virdiflora, The Green Rose


China 1743

At one time, it was forbidden for anyone outside of the Forbidden City to grow this rose. It was literally the sole property of the emperors.

This special rose is unique in that it is what is known as asexual. It does not make pollen or set hips; therefore, it cannot be used in hybridizing.

The strange blooms are made up entirely of sepals rather than petals. It seems it forgot to make petals, and so made the bloom up of more sepals! Her slight fragrance is said to be peppery or spicy.
