Cedar of Lebanon, the Cedar of God, is a unbowed, proud and imposing coniferous tree. Its womb and cradle is that region of the southeastern side of the Mediterranean Basin, the Asia Minor coastline and the Middle East, which saw the rise of important and great civilizations.
The Black Baccara Rose (Rosa ‘Black Baccara’), which belongs to the Hybrid Tea, is one of the first varieties of its species that flowers come close to the dreaming black-colored roses.
