Sweet Briar, the wild rose of English hedgerows, represents poetry, and the pleasure and pain that inspires the hearts of poets.
Roses are traditionally a symbol of love, and the wild Sweet Briar encapsulates the freedom, endurance, pleasures and heartaches of true love.
An ideal flower to use in a painting for anniversaries, weddings, or for someone who has the heart of a poet.
For details of commissioning a painting see the Language of Flowers page.
