Palmetto Rose Wreath

According to the creators of this beautiful Etsy shop, DsweetgrassBasketry “The history of the Palmetto Rose goes back hundreds of years. When the men would go to war, each of the women would line up in the streets and pin a rose on the men. This symbolized strength and good luck. During the days of battle, the cannon balls bounced off our Palmetto Trees. This is why it is a sign of strength, good luck and is our state flag. 

Palmetto Rose Bouquet

These bouquets last quite a while and make a perfect decoration for your table, wall and even your desk. Such a beautiful way to add style and nature to the indoors.
