Rose Colors convey deep and various meanings, so here are some pointers to help you express yourself on Valentines Day, or avoid misunderstandings!
Red- Symbolizes passion, love, romance, eroticism, perfection, respect, and beauty. The deeper the red, the more intense the meaning. A single red rose packs a great punch and means "I Love You" and depicts utmost admiration (NOT a good choice for someone you just started dating)
Orange- Symbolizes enthusiasm, desire, fascination, pride, satisfaction of success and strengthened love.
White- Symbolizes purity, innocence, humility, pious, heavenly, silence, sincerity, and youthfulness. White roses are bold, refreshing, and my personal favorite!
Pink- Symbolizes appreciation, gentleness, admiration, grace, gladness, sweetness, and joy. Dark Pink Roses are expressions of gratitude and appreciation and convey, "Thank You."
Lavender- Symbolizes Love at first sight, enchantment, feminism, grace, elegance, and charm. Lavender roses are given to reflect the beauty and grace of those who receive them!
Peach- Symbolizes appreciation, "Closing the Deal", "Let's Get Together", and sincerity. Peach flowers convey a deeper sense of friendship than romance and are ideal for the casual dater to express their "fondness and gratitude" toward their not-so-serious partners
Coral- Symbolizes desire
Green- Symbolizes joy and optimism, youth and fortune
Violet- Symbolizes hope, generosity, faithfulness, modesty, passion, humility, respect, and admiration.
Yellow- Symbolizes joy, gladness, delight, Promise of a New Beginning, "I Care", enthusiasm, success and happiness. Use caution because darker yellows convey jealousy, treachery, and pride
Black- (Reserved for Break Ups) Symbolizes farewell, ill wishes and emotions toward the recipient, and unhappy endings...ouch!
Red and White- given together symbolize unity and devotion
Yellow with Red Tip- convey Falling in Love, desire to take things from friendship to relationship
Blue- Symbolizes stability, tranquility, trustworthy, and are perfect for a deep, intimate couple!
Burgundy- has been ironically dedicated in remembrance of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson and his legend. Burgundy also symbolizes unconscious beauty.
A thorn-less rose symbolizes Love at First Sight, and a simple red rosebud is symbolic of purity and loveliness (Ladies do NOT frown or gaze in disgust at a man who gives you a red rosebud)
Two roses entwined together communicate- Marry Me, and 13 roses indicate a secret admirer
