Alberta Wild Rose

Wild roses have been used as a source of food and in healing remedies for centuries, but are most famously know for their beautiful fragrance. Wild roses can be found across Canada ranging in colours from pale to bright pink. Adopted in 1930 as the provincial flower of Alberta, the suggestions were passed along to the Department of Education for review, but the final decision was made by the province’s schoolchildren.

During the pressing process of these flowers, the brighter pink petals dry to a deep purple, sometimes exhibiting a shade of neon!
