Most rose varieties are deciduous shrubs, but other growth habits such climbers, which need a means of support, exist. Rose flowers originally possessed five petals, but breeders have developed varieties that produce flowers with more than 40 petals. Sharp extensions along stems are often mistakenly called thorns, they are actually prickles. In addition to their ornamental value, roses can also be used in medicine, food, and perfume.
