In the wild, it all started with a white rose - rosa alba, growing widely in hedgerows throughout Europe. (Mind you, it’s only one of about 100 wild species, never mind the countless cultivars we have today.) Though the rose is a symbol of England, here in Scotland we have our own rosy connections. Mary, Queen of Scots, married the Dauphin of France. Eleanor of Provence had adopted the rose as her own emblem long before this - thus Mary was entitled to wear this royal rose of France. It became associated with the Stuart monarchs of Scotland. Great-great-great grandson Prince Charles Edward Stuart (aka Bonnie Prince Charlie) adopted it too as the Jacobite rose - a simple white rose, the white cockade of song and story.
