When trying to figure out where to start out at with literally thousands of flowers and with some having hundreds of varieties, I decided to tackle roses!  Roses are probably the most popular flower in history. Evidence suggest that roses have been used by mankind for thousands of years, as quite apart from its intrinsic beauty, it was valued for its fruits for a source of vitamin C as well as for its restorative powers, also for its beautiful wood and as a highly valuable ingredient in essential oils and perfumes.

Narrowing down our topic flower to the most popular flower of all time was easy.  Then I had to decide which color to start with and since Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, I decided to start with the pink rose (pink happens to also be one of my favorite colors).

Among all types of pink roses – medium, light, and hot – there are literally over 136.  I know this because we have 136 named varieties in just our Flower Library and I know we still have more to add. 

I’ve asked the Mayesh team to focus on medium pink roses and here is the list that we came up with – our top 5 favorites!

#1:  Sweet Unique
