MORE THAN JUST A ROSE

MORE THAN JUST A ROSE

Roses have proven to be an object of affection, care, elegance and tradition in a great number of cultures worldwide, each of which appreciates a particular type, shape or color. However, there are certain fundamental characteristics that make a rose a quality product.

1. Symmetry

The basic shape of a rose resembles that of a button; a circle around which the petals organize symmetrically and naturally, forming almost a perfect spiral.
It is essential that this form be maintained, as it says plenty about the flower’s cultivation and harvest.

2. Petals

Petals are essential in what we identify as a ROSE; it is the petals that define a rose as such, since they have a particular, cold, silky and soft-to-the-touch texture, while maintaining regular yet flexible edges.
A rose can have up to sixty petals organized around the middle; those on the interior generally seem to stay together and close-in over their center, while those on the exterior tend to open up and, in some cases, spiral outward.

3. Color

Color is one of a rose’s most interesting attributes, with an enormous diversity of colors and tones within each variety. We can find one, two or even three different colors in a single type of rose, each eliciting unique sensations and meanings. Roses can exhibit almost every existing color, leaving aside tones of black and blue.

4. Scent

The scent of a rose, for years, has been one of its fundamental characteristics, adorning houses, buildings and many other places, both through their visual appeal and through the scent they imbue on spaces. These scents are deep, soft and delicate, with a sweet and natural touch. Further, due to the great variety of roses available today, scents have also changed and taken different forms, being in some cases more robust and, in others, even slightly bitter.

The Andes is a broad mountain range that crosses the western edge of Latin America, dividing countries, such as Ecuador, into diverse and unique regions.

Ecuador is an immensely diverse country, and this makes environmental responsibility a fundamental aspect in each stage of our processes. With the goal of reducing our environmental impact, we have restructured our pest and disease control policies
