The Legend of the Palmetto Rose

The weaving of the Charleston Palmetto Rose dates back to the Civil War.  Tradition holds that southern ladies would give their true love a palmetto rose to keep them safe from harm as they rode into war.  Today, these roses are still keepsakes that symbolize everlasting love.

The palmetto rose is made from South Carolina's official State Tree, the Palmetto Tree.  Due to each leaf's unique appearance, no two roses are exactly the same.  The natural colors may vary from dark green to yellow or tan.
