A red rose (flower)
 
A rose (graph with only one vertex)

Etymology 1Edit

From Middle English rose, roose, from Old English rōse, from Latin rosa, from Oscan, from Ancient Greek ῥόδον (rhódon) (Aeolic ϝρόδον (wródon)), from Old Persian *wṛda- (flower) (compare Avestan 𐬬𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬜𐬀(varǝδa-), Sogdian ward, Parthian wâr, late Middle Persian gwl (gul), Persian گل(gul), and Middle Iranian borrowings including Old Armenian վարդ (vard), Aramaic וַרְדָּא(wardā) / ܘܪܕܐ(wardā), Arabic وَرْدَة(warda), Hebrew וֶרֶד(wéreḏ)), from Proto-Indo-European *wr̥dʰos (sweetbriar) (compare Old English word (thornbush), Latin rubus (bramble), Albanian hurdhe (ivy)). Possibly ultimately a derivation from a verb for "to grow" only attested in Indo-Iranian (*Hwardh-, compare Sanskrit vardh-, with relatives in Avestan).
