The Dark Tower Wiki

The Rose is another nexus of reality separate from the Dark Tower. It exists in the Keystone World and can be found in New York City, on the corner of Second and Forty-Sixth in a vacant lot.

It is dusky pink on the outside, fierce red on the inside and has a center as yellow as the sun.

The Rose is similar to the ones found in the Can'-Ka No Rey in that it produces singing that is more audible to some than others. Hearing this singing is described by Eddie and Roland as making everything feel "alright". The Rose also has a power of healing. One man said that standing outside the fence cured his acne.

The Rose is vital to the health of the Tower itself, as all nexuses are. If the Rose were to die or be plucked, its Tower would collapse.

Roland and Eddie Dean eventually do obtain the lot from Calvin, and it is on the lot that the Tet Corporation's headquarters were built on to protect The Rose for Roland and the white.
