The national flower of Ecuador is the Rose

In Ecuador, the roses are awesome because the country has the best conditions to cultivate them. 
  • First, it is because of the altitude. Quito (Ecuador's capital) is one of the highest cities in Latin America, and roses are gown just a few hours from Quito.
  • Second, it's because of the location and the temperature. Quito and its near areas are in the middle of the world. This means that the sunlight hits it directly, which added to the altitude make a unique combination of location and height for the roses to receive as much sunlight as anywhere else in the world.

It's the sunlight that gives to the roses its unique colors. 
The sun of Ecuador is stronger and is able to give more radiation to the rose plants. 
That is why the Ecuadorian roses have so 
beautiful and unique colors.
