Of all the fanfare around roses the botanical name of roses is simply Rosa. Wild roses have a suffix such as Rosa rugosa, Rosa woodsii, Rosa chinensis, wild roses are easy to classify.
It is indeed confusing while most other flowers have such complicated botanical names why a rose that is so wellknown and a favourite of many should have just Rosa as its botanical name.
Just take orchids for example their botanical or scientific name is Phalaenopsis and so will you find such odd botanical names for so many other flowers and one needs to dig in to find their origin.
