ABSTRACT

............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Rose is an ornamental aromatic plant belong to the family Rosaceae. In all 22 varieties from 2 different rose species viz Hybrid Tea and Floribundas (F) were used in this study. Out of these 19 rose petals varieties were moderately to strongly antibacterial against all the screened bacteria and the remaining 3 varieties demonstrated weak antibacterial activity. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was found to be strongly sensitive to all the 22 rose varieties with maximum zone of inhibition (32mm). Bacillus coagulans, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Shigella flexeneri and Salmonella typhi were moderately sensitive while Enterobacter aerogenes, Enterococcus faecalis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella typhimurium were weakly sensitive. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was resistant to most of the standard antibiotics. Enterococcus faecalis was resistant to 2 varieties namely Koppies and Zorina. Staphylococcus aureus was resistant to 2 varieties namely Vimala and Zorina. Proteus vulgaris was resistant to 3 varieties namely Charleston, Viamala and Zorina where as Klebisella pneumoniae was resistant to 2 varieties namely Viamala and Zorina and Bacillus coagulans was resistant to 1 variety namely Zorina. These rose varieties may act as good alternatives to reduce the excess use of antibiotics to some extent, without side effect. Further studies are required for the screening of volatile and non-volatile active antimicrobial chemical constituents of rose petals to utilize them in pharmaceutical industries.


Key words: Rose petals, bacterial pathogens, antibacterial activities.
