Roses, the Color of Love or Something Else…what does my bouquet mean?

 

Huzzah. I got roses this Valentine’s Day.

 

Happy Valentine’s Day! Roses are some of the most popular tokens of affection exchanged on this day, but did you ever wonder if there was a hidden message in the bouquet? In Victorian times the color of the roses had significance and some say roses tell secrets today. Want to know what the hue of your roses means? Here’s what I’ve discovered.

  1. Red. These ruby beauties talk of true love and passion, but they can also say, “Congratulations!”
  2. Deep Red or Burgundy-say, “You’re beautiful.”
  3. White shouts purity and innocence, yet sometimes they whisper, “keep quiet, keep the secret”.
  4. Pink says, “Thank you,” and signifies appreciation.
  5. Peach smiles and gives you the nudge and the wink. “Let’s get together.” Then again, sometimes it speaks of sincerity and gratitude.
  6. Coral whistles desire.
  7. Black, that deep, purple blue, can be used for death or farewell.
  8. Blue announces the unattainable, the impossible.
  9. Thorn-less roses or lavender roses are for, “Love at first sight.”
  10. Orangeis for enthusiastic desire.
  11. Red and white together speak of unity. They say, “I’m with you.”
  12. Yellow with red tips might mean just friends or they might hint at falling in love.
  13. Yellow has various meaning. Sometimes they’re used for joy, gladness or friendship, but other times they mutter about jealousy or trumpet about new beginnings.
