‘Under the Roses’ is a euphemism for buried secrets. The allusion comes from the Latin phrase Sub Rosa, which dates back to classical Roman times when the rose became the symbol of confidentiality and secrets. The expression became well known in German literature, eventually finding its way to English literature in the nineteenth century.
