History

Damask roses (R. damascena) are queens of the Persian and Arabian gardens and the most fragrant roses of the Old Garden. They are not only beautiful: the roses with 60 petals are enchanting but they also have healing properties. Studies of rose oil and essential oil obtained from them show the presence of antioxidants (substances that inhibit the oxidation of organic substances), antibacterial and antimicrobial activity.

There is a suggestion that the Damask roses come from a cross between R. gallica (R. of Gallia) and R. phhenicia (R. in Phoenician). Inner Damask roses the side of the East. Western roses came through Asia Minor, Syria and the countries in the Middle East. Most likely, after their return from another campaign in Asia, the Crusaders took these roses and brought them to Europe in 1254. This is when the the name Damask Rose appeared a rose brought from Damascus. We do not know the details of this mysterious story, it is obscured by fog. The first reference to "the common Damask" appeared in the 1820s. 

The rose Trigintipetala is widely used in the oil industry in Bulgaria. It is believed that this variety was imported from Turkey and maybe this was R. damascena (R. Damascus). If so, then the characteristics of the original Damask rose should be as follows: numerous branches pointing upward, hanging like arches, partially folded, partially fuzzy gray-green leaves, flowers gathered in a brush. In short, the sophisticated look, the strong aroma of flowers and the wide range of colors with the transition from white to pink that's a real splendor!
