The Meaning of Rose Colours

As professional florists, we often get asked questions about whether Roses have meanings based on their colour.

What is the right rose to give?
What does that colour Rose symbolize?
I want to give her a flower, but not Red Roses, what would be best?
What Rose is for Friendship?
What do Pink Roses mean?
Do Yellow Roses mean Jealousy?
Is there a Birthday Rose for Each Month?

It's a really interesting subject and expands further on our earlier blog post about Floriography - The meaning of flowers, and for more information on flowers and birthstones per month, read more here>

In New Zealand we are fortunate to have beautiful N.Z. grown Roses available all year round in a wide choice of colours.

These are old worlde traditions, stemming from Victorian times when they used posies of flowers to convey messages of love, and roses were always the centrepiece of these tussie mussies, the symbol of love and affection.

I believe that sending any type of flowers means you think highly of them and wish them well, and both giving and receiving flowers conveys feelings of joy.
But why not have some fun, try sending a bouquet of roses based on the meaning, and see if they guess what you are trying to say in a more deep way.
