A SMALL HISTORY LESSON ABOUT THE ROSE HIP
The Rose hip has many tales to tell when it comes to her history. Centuries ago she was discovered and admired for her beauty. But where does the name Rose hip come from? Her name reveals her secret already: a Rose. She can grow from almost every type of Rose- after the Rose is pollinated the Rose hip will start to grow. Patience and time are essential for the growth of this autumn beauty.
During the times of the great discovery journeys, dried Rose hips were brought on the ship, to prevent or fight scurvy. Rose hip can also relieve people suffering from a cold, coughs and stomach cramps.
DISCOVER THE DIVERSITY OF THE ROSE HIP
The colour of the Rose hip fruits depends on the type of Rose. There are multiple colours available such as, red, black, purple and orange. The Rose hip not only comes in different shapes and colours, she is also available in handmade wreaths. The wreaths can create that real Autumn interior by using it in your floral arrangements. The fruits are rugged and have a crown at the bottom. The orange flesh and seeds filling will carry you into Autumn.
