Every loves a rose on Valentine’s Day, but what color should you send? It mattes, so choose wisely!

Valentine Roses

It turns out that your go-to long-stemmed flowers date back to a former King of Sweden. Long-stemmed red roses are practically synonymous with Valentine’s Day. The red rose, as you may have guessed, translated to deep love. The rose took on this meaning because of its affiliation with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Since then, different colored roses have come to express different sentiments. Here are a few of the meanings and colors of the many roses available.

  • Pink roses express admiration, gentleness, grace, gladness, joy and sweetness.
  • Yellow roses show cheer and joy. Giving yellow roses can tell someone the joy they bring you and the friendship you share.
  • White roses, the purist of colors, represent innocence, purity and charm and are traditionally used in weddings.
  • Orange roses evoke desire and excitement. Giving orange roses can symbolize a passionate romance.
  • Love at first sight or just an enchanting way to say, “I love you!” Lavender roses offer a daily reminder of your eagerness to grow a relationship.
  • Are you grateful for someone or just want to show your appreciation? Then consider giving a peach-colored rose. A bouquet of peach roses shows your deep appreciation and gratitude.
  • Cream roses are indicative of charm and thoughtfulness. They go well with pink “thank you” roses which allow you to send two messages in one bunch!
