Dear Michelle Valentine,
I know that sending roses is the most special of flowers to send to someone, but isn’t there certain meanings to sending certain colors and types? I don’t want to send the wrong impression to someone I may be falling in love with by sending her a pink rose!
Roses Are Red, Violets Are Purple
Yes, each rose represents a different meaning.
Sending someone you are falling in love with perhaps should not get a pink rose – she may never kiss you again, thinking you just want to be friends!
Here are some tips to send the right message by sending the right color of rose:
- Single red rose means “I love you”
- Red roses, single in full bloom means “I love you” or “I still love you”
- Red rosebud means “pure and lonely”
- Pink rose means “perfect happiness, friendship”
- Yellow rose means “decrease of love, jealously”
- White rose means “innocence and purity, heavenly”
Here are the types of roses and their meanings:
- Leaf rose means “you may hope for love”
- Thorn-less rose means “love at first sight”
- Tea rose means “I’ll remember always”
- Rosebud means “beauty and youth”
- Cluster of roses means “still in love, charming”
- White rose, dried means “death is preferable to loss of virtue”
- White rose, withered means “you made no impression”
The month of June is celebrated as “Rose Month”!
