Konno Oyuki writes in the first novel:
There are only three leaders, officially called Rosa Chinensis, Rosa Gigantea, and Rosa Fœtida. These three people share in equal parts the official duties of student council president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and it has been this way for generations.
I interpret this as there is no one-to-one mapping of title to rose; the Rosas and their soeurs all work together to do the work that most student councils perform.
