Popular Flower on Stamps – Rose

On March 25, 2011, to mark the coming of the spring, Latvia Post has released a new stamp in the Popular Flowers series - the Rose designed artist Lilija Dinere. The flower motif in stamps is very popular among clients, ”Rose is a very beautiful, bright, summery stamp “. Therefore  Latvia Post has chosen, Rose as part of  a special series dedicated to popular flowers.

A rose is a woody perennial of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae. There are over 100 species. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles.

Flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy, in colours ranging from white through yellows and reds.
Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. Species, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and often are fragrant.
