The rose is an incredible flower. It has been used both as a symbol of true love and as an emblem during war. Its petals are soft and delicate, yet the rosebush is one of the hardiest plants in the world. Roses are used to express the most intimate of sentiments, yet rosebushes are often used for security and protection. The rose is known as the Queen of flowers for good reason - and this June, during National Rose Month, the experts at Peoples Flowers would like to share some amazing facts about this extraordinary flower.

Memorial Day has been recognized since the year after the Civil War ended, named Decoration Day until it was named an official holiday in 1971. If you would like to have flowers delivered to the loved ones of a fallen soldier - or send an appropriate floral arrangement to a grave site - you can rely on the team at Peoples Flowers to design Memorial Day flowers that are both patriotic and poignant.
Poetic Flowers: After World War I, the holiday would be associated with the red poppy, thanks to a poem written by John McCrae, a soldier and medic who wrote his verse to memorialize his experiences in battle. In Flanders Fields remembered the scene of red poppies growing among the soldier's graves. "In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row..." The red poppy has endured as a lasting symbol of the day although in modern times, a faux flower is usually passed out by churches and benevolent societies to be worn on a lapel.
