Our Story

Like in all good fairy tales, the story of THE ONLY ROSES begins in a place far, far away.

That faraway place is Shandong, a coastal province in northern China. Eight years ago, a daughter waved a teary goodbye to her mother as she moved from Shandong to settle thousands of miles across the world in America.

The daughter missed her mother with all of her heart, so she sent her beautiful bouquets of roses. But like all fresh flowers, those roses would start to fade shortly after arriving. They were far from everlasting.

Those wilted flowers inspired the daughter to find something better. Her search led her to the mountain-top farms of Ecuador, where the world’s best and most beautiful roses are grown.

It’s where the daughter discovered the Everlasting Rose.

The daughter couldn’t believe how perfect it was-- a real rose with all the beauty of a fresh-picked flower that lasted a year or more! And it never needed watering or special care.

The daughter began sending Everlasting Roses to her mother in Shandong. And since their beauty did not fade, the mother’s house began to fill with love and flowers-- so much so that colorful petals began to overflow from her windows and get attention from neighbors who all wanted their own.

That daughter knew she should share the Everlasting Rose with the world, and started THE ONLY ROSES which she runs with her family in America-- still far from her mother but only in distance.

That daughter was me, Silvia Lee. I’m still wowed by the beauty of Everlasting Roses and can’t wait to help you share them with those you love most.

With love and roses,

Silvia Lee
