Rose is one of the best known and most favorite plants in the world. There are 100 different species of roses. The majority of them are native to Asia, while others originate from Europe, North America, and Africa. Roses can be found throughout the world due to commercial breeding. Cultivation of roses started 500 years BC and resulted in the creation of 13 000 varieties of roses.

Wild roses can survive in various habitats, except those associated with extremely cold winters. Certain species of wild roses are faced with an uncertain future (listed as endangered) because of habitat loss.
