The Meaning of Rose Colors Explained

I wrote in a previous article about the meanings of flowers and more specifically about what the colors of roses mean. Roses are a lovely gift for Valentine's Day and not just because they are beautiful. Their colors send a message to the person receiving them about our feelings about them.

For example

Red roses most often signify romantic love, and the rose coloring meaning in this case goes back centuries. Very often, red roses were used to decorate for weddings and marriage ceremonies. They have a primal connotation that symbolizes love.

Pink roses mean appreciation and gratitude and light pink roses also mean sympathy, so if you're sending roses to someone who is bereaved, think about the gentle light pink rose as an option.

Purple or lavender roses mean love at first sight. Purple is also the color of royalty, so sending a bouquet of roses in shades of purple brings a bit of the palace to your abode.

Other rose color meanings are significant as well. The white rose meaning stands for purity and are often the flower of choice for weddings for this reason.

I chose to highlight these rose color meanings, because they are most specifically associated with Valentine's Day. However, if you'd like to read more about them, you can take a more in depth look at the meaning of rose colors here.
