This title is not given to just any flower. The majestic rose owes the title to its worldwide popularity. Roses are always welcome and are suitable for any occasion.
The rose is available in a range of colours; red, white, yellow, pink, purple, orange and green. They are also available as bi-coloured or with more than two colours. They come in a variety of shapes; from large to small and with long or short stems and each year a few beautiful new varieties are added to the range.
The rose is the flower which has the most symbolic meanings. You may have declared your love for someone with roses and red roses are definitely the symbol of love.
Did you know that each colour of rose has its own meaning?
- Red: love and respect
- White: real love, purity, dignity
- Pink: happiness, thankfulness, purity
- Orange: desire, appreciation, sympathy
- Yellow: intimate friendship, solidarity
Not only the colour, but also a combination of colours or other flowers have a meaning. A white and red rose together communicates the desire to always be together. They indicate unity and solidarity. Roses in a bouquet symbolize thankfulness and one rose in a bouquet stands for: ‘you are the one I love, you are the one for me!’ Lovely, isn’t it? The heart-shaped flowers suggest feelings of love and trust. The thorns on the rose demonstrate that life and love are not always a bed of roses and symbolizes the effort someone is prepared to go to for their loved one.
