I have prickles on my stems and my fruit is called a hip! I come in many different colors and the Red variety is a symbol of Love.

A Rose Poem

The Rose Family by Robert Frost
The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose, 
and the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose - 
But were always a rose.
