Flowers By Variety > Roses

Roses are available in several different grades, and at Arena Flowers we only sell the highest grade roses and all range from 60cm to 90cm in height, unlike the 30cm to 40cm range found in supermarkets.  As we source our flowers direct from Holland, we can deliver them on the day after they are picked.  This makes Arena Flowers the freshest rose supplier in the UK! You simply will not find fresher, more spectacular roses anywhere.  Roses make a wonderful romantic gift.

Roses

How many times have you bought or received roses that look as if they have seen better days or wilted soon after you bought them? The reason for this, is because most roses sold in the UK are several days old even before they reach a florist or supermarket.

As we source our flowers direct from Holland and Kenya, we can deliver flowers on the day after they are picked. Pick your gift from our Roses range and be certain to send the freshest bouquet with your flower delivery. Click here for more info on roses in our rose care guide.

If you would like to send a single rose, please visit our sister site, AmazeBox.co.uk, where you can send a single red rose, a single pink rose, a single white rose or a single yellow rose.

    I ordered  the Indoor Luxury Basket for my daughter which arrived in good time and she loved it. She took at photo and I was so pleased that the plants were in such a beautiful condition - healthy and fresh with buds, opening and full blooms on the flowering plants and shiny green foliage on the others. Thank you so much for delivering such a quality gift. Nige H

    The recipient was absolutely delighted with the bouquet.  She commented on the beauty and variety of the flowers, and was very impressed by the packaging, and that none of the flowers had been bruised in the least, despite the box. An absolute success! Thank you. Terri S

Sending Roses

The botanical name of the rose is rosa and has long been the symbol for love and passion. Roses originate from China and are now cultivate from America to Africa and from Eastern Europe to the Far East. Today, there are over 30,000 varieties of roses and have the most complicated family tree of any known flower species.

Roses were extensively grown in the Middle East during the Roman period, where they were used in food, as confetti at celebrations, for medicinal purposes, and as a source of perfume.

In the 19 th century, old scented roses were used to make jelly. The red rose is the symbol of England and is worn on St George's Day. It is also the symbol of love and is hugely popular asValentine's Day flowers.

Roses come in all sizes and there are different varieties for different locations. Roses have amazing scents, astonishing beauty and some varieties have vigorous growth that will sprint up a tree, using it as a frame.

For extra scented roses, look for 'Sterling Star' (lilac), 'Jacaranda' (blue-pink), 'Osiana' (peach-cream), 'Sterling Silver' (lilac) and 'Extase' (deep red). Our most popular roses are the white avalanche roses, red grand prix roses, pink aqua roses and yellow illios roses.

As a care tip limp roses can be revived by standing up to their necks in lukewarm water in a cool room. Do not bash the stems as this prevents them taking up water effectively. Don't remove thorns unless for a hand-held posy, as these can cause wounds where bacteria can enter. They have a vase life of around a week but can last even longer if cared for correctly.
