    I'm not a native English speaker, so my answer might not be the definitive one, but I think "save roses" means "except for roses".

    Also, I think "Arabian speaker" should be "Arabic speaker".

    Yes, and yes!

    (The overall sentence sounds "clunky" in English, as though machine-translated from another language... but Crocodile is correct that in this context, "save" means "except for" or "besides" or "excluding").
