The name WABARA is a combination of two Japanese words; ‘WA’ and ‘BARA’. WA is a Japanese cultural concept usually translated into English as “harmony”. It implies a peaceful unity and conformity within a social group, in which members prefer the continuation of a harmonious community over their personal interests. While BARA is the Japanese name for rose. Hence Wabara! Wabara are roses that originated from a rose Farm in Japan called Keiji, a few miles from Kyoto. Keiji Kunieda started 10 years ago breeding and selecting new types of (scented) garden roses. The roses are grown with organic fertilizer, without chemicals, and watered with tap water. Roses from the Keiji farm have been cultivated and sold for several years now, and in that period of time, the different varieties of roses have become well known in the area. The circumstances in which the roses grow are important to the breeders of the Wabara roses. They help to create better quality flowers, more intense colors, and a longer vase-life. In the belief that roses will grow healthy, shiny, and with more strength, the Japanese creators of the roses share the philosophy that, in order to live in harmony and coexist with the environment, the roses should be grown free from chemicals. With respect to nature the surroundings, not damaging nature.
