Compost Rose

compostrose4a

Compost Rose. A rare, delicate flower found only indoors in winter, when its normal ecological niche—mounded decaying vegetative matter—is frozen and lost among the snow drifts.

Rosa composta should not be confused with the Compass Roses (rosa humanica nautica and rosa humanica aeronautica), or the Windrose (rosa humanica meteorica), more poetically known as the Rose of the Winds.

Compass Roses and Windroses inhabit a completely different ecosystem than does the Compost Rose, and are at home with human machines for conveyance, and seers of future meteorological events.
