================== ARTICLE START ==================
Giving a bouquet of beautiful roses makes a clear statement:
the receiver of the flowers is dear to the giver in some
meaningful way. Different than giving just a bouquet of
flowers, roses imply 'Hey, I really mean this!" The giver has
made the effort to bestow what some see as the most beautiful
and most splendid of flowers, one that for thousands of years
has been the symbol of romance and a soother of the heart.
Roses have been bred in a variety of colors, each with its
particular meaning. Now, there are no hard and fast rules � few
recipients will fault one for sending a beautiful bouquet of the
'wrong' color! But knowing the meaning a certain hue can imply,
and giving the appropriate roses, will make the gift all the
more wonderful. Discovering the best way to express your love,
affection, friendship, thankfulness, joy, or any other of a
great multitude of gestures will make the receiver and the
giver more fulfilled with act of giving. Let that someone
special in your life know exactly how you feel about them, be
they wife or husband, friend or lover, mom or dad, grandma or
grandpa or your favorite hero of the day - there are no
limitations when sending roses. So let's have a look at the
wonderful array of colors and their meanings�
Red roses show love, passion and respect. True red roses say "I
love you" more than any other flower; deep red roses imply
unconscious beauty, and that true love may be stronger than
thorns. It happens that the perfect red rose is more difficult
to grow than any other color � a reflection, perhaps, of the
perfect love. Other particular colors of red have particular
meanings as well: Amaranth red, long standing desire. Cardinal
red, sublime desire. Carmine, deceitful desire. Fiery red,
flames of passion.
Pink roses communicate happiness, appreciation, admiration, and
friendship with grace and elegance. There is a sweetness about
the gesture, like the way good friends appreciate one another,
or that special feeling of a grandmother's care. Light pink is
the more about the sharing of joy, whereas dark pink is more
Lavender roses, those with a soft purple hue, symbolize love at
first sight and enchantment � perhaps with a need for
White roses signify purity in many forms. Loyalty, purity,
platonic love and spiritual love � a love of the soul. Bridal
white means happy love. White roses can also signify secrecy
reverence humility, innocence, or charm. Note that white roses
can symbolize death in Asian cultures.
Yellow roses in Victorian times meant jealousy, though today
yellow shows "I care". The color is that of familiar love and
domestic happiness � that of friendship, joy, gladness or
freedom. The yellow rose is also sometimes given in sympathy.
Happy Coral and Orange
Coral roses, of a beautiful orange-pink color, imply a bright
desire. Not quite as 'lusty' as the deep red, but more of like
"We can (or do) spend happy times together".
The Crone's Black
Do black roses really exist? Well, there are very deep colors
of red, and roses can be dyed. And their meaning depends on
whom you ask: some say they are symbol of death, and can be
given as an ominous symbol. Others say they represent the death
of old habits or patterns, and symbolize rebirth�it seems one
should know the receiver when giving this color!
Similar black, no true blue roses are grown. They are a fantasy
color, created through the dying of the flowers themselves, or
the adding of a dye to the bark at the shrub's roots. And like
the surreal color they are, blue represents wonder and dreamy
Mixing rose colors is always a wonderful option � mixing the
hues allows one to express feelings in a very personal way. A
few "standard" mixes are: White and red to signify unity; red
and yellow roses together say "Congratulations!"; yellow and
orange in combination imply passionate thoughts.
Other Messages From Roses: A single rose denotes "I still love
you", and a bouquet of roses in full bloom expresses the same
sentiment in grand fasion; two roses of any color taped or
wired together signify a commitment or forthcoming marriage;
giving rose buds shows appreciation for youth and beauty.
With roses and flowers there are no limitations as to what can
be expressed. The colors of the different types of roses all
have their unique place the history of human expression.
Knowing the specific meaning of a rose only enhances the
experience of sending and receiving them as a glorious and
