What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.

I know of no other genus whose plants flower out-of-doors every day of the year.
I know of no other genus with one or more species coming into bloom or growth, peaking or going dormant at every season.

I don't know whether nice people tend to grow roses
or growing roses makes people nice.
