In 1916, with the support of the Georgia Federation of Women's Clubs, the Cherokee rose was named the state floral emblem of Georgia. The name "Cherokee Rose" is a local designation derived from the Cherokee Indians who widely distributed the plant.

The rose is excessively thorny and generously supplied with leaves of a vivid green. In color, it is waxy white with a large golden center. Blooming time is in the early spring, but favorable conditions will produce, in the fall of the year, a second flowering of this hardy plant.
