Roman Post has released a set of four stamps depicting gorgeous flowers. This postage stamp issue presents rare flower species found in the patrimony of four botanical gardens in Romania. The stamps were unveiled and put into circulation on the circulation on the 3d of July.
The role of botanical gardens has changed over time, from being, in the beginning, medicinal gardens for the study and cultivation of plants with healing properties, to becoming in time open green spaces for people’s relaxation and leisure.
