In the language of flowers, sometimes the most obvious choice is also the most extraordinary.  Here, I have chosen to highlight the gorgeous garden rose, an even more fragrant and showy variety than your average rose. In the United States, most regular roses that you find at your local florist or grocery store have been shipped to us from South America (although different species of roses are cultivated all over the world). Garden roses may have a more pedestrian-sounding name (as if someone just threw down some seeds and they sprung up in the garden) and hail from much less exotic locales (primarily California and Texas), but they radiate a unique beauty.

As noted above, garden roses tend to have a more intense and complex fragrance, and they have bigger heads that include many more layers of downy petals. Although garden roses can be pricey ($6 to $8 per stem), they do last well as a cut flower and absolutely bring down the house in any arrangement. Invest in a small bouquet of them during July and August, when garden roses are at their peak. And if you are lucky enough to have your own patch of earth that gets plenty of direct sun and excellent soil drainage, please shut down your computer and run to the nearest nursery for a plant or two.
