Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
The color of a flower means a thing or two,
And that’s what I’m here to tell all of you.
Before you order up your next bouquet of flowers for a special someone, take a minute to review my handy cheat sheet of the meaning behind rose colors just in case you didn’t know . . .
Red Roses: Passion and love. Send red roses if you want to say “I love you”on Valentine’s Day or an anniversary.
Pink Roses: Joy, sweetness, and admiration. Send pink roses if you want to say “I admire you and think you’re sweet.” Pink roses feel right for those newly dating, for a dad to send their daughter, or for a hallmark holiday like Sweetest Day.
Purple Roses: Enchantment. Purple roses should be your go-to for love at first sight.
Yellow Roses: Joy and friendship. Send yellow roses to a girlfriend, an aunt, someone who you want to thank for something special they did for you.
White: Innocence and purity. Send white roses to a new bride, a graduate, or incorporate into a wedding to say “here’s to new beginnings.”
Orange: Energy and enthusiasm. Send to a new flame to show how much you dig your new relationship and fiery future.
Peach: Appreciation and gratitude. Send peach roses to say “thank you” to someone and to show how much you appreciate them. Oh how I love a bouquet of peach roses.
