Did You Know? Valentine's Day Edition

rosesforvalentinesKENTUCKY (2/14/14) —Approximately 110 million roses, mostly red, will be sold and delivered in three days surrounding Valentine's Day.

The reason red roses are so popular is because they were the favorite flowers of Juno, the Roman goddess of love.

There are nearly 900 acres of greenhouse dedicated to the production of fresh-cut roses in the United States.

One acre of greenhouse rose production in the United States is valued at about one million dollars, which includes the value of the plants, greenhouse structure and land.

Although California grows 60 percent of the roses in the United States, the majority of those bought for Valentine's day will have been shipped from South America.
