In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the rose petals, sugar, rose water and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Cook until a thick pink syrup forms, about 10 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.

In a large bowl, add all of the graham cracker crust ingredients together and press it into the bottom and 1-inch up the sides of a springform pan. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes while making the cheesecake filling. Beat all of the filling ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour it over the graham cracker crust.

Bake cheesecake for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and leave the cheesecake in oven, with the door closed, for 1 additional hour. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and chill thoroughly. Before serving, beat together the sour cream, sugar, lemon zest and vanilla. In a small bowl. Smooth the sour cream mixture over the top of the cheesecake. Cut into slices and garnish each with rose petal syrup.
