Have you ever wondered what the meanings of different coloured roses meant?.. With Valentine's Day fast approaching we thought we would explain for you.

Roses are the traditional gift given on Valentines Day, although they’re certain to be well-received any time of year. But before you buy roses, know what message you’re sending. The colour of a rose can have a very different meaning from what you intend. To ensure that your loved one understands what the roses you bestow mean, check this guide to rose colours and their meanings:


Red Roses

Red roses proclaim “I love you.” They are the ultimate symbol of romantic love and enduring passion. Florists can’t keep up with Valentines Day demand for red roses, which makes them especially expensive in February.

Yellow Roses

Yellow roses indicate friendship and freedom — so don’t send them if your intentions are romantic and long-lasting. Yellow roses are also appropriate for sending congratulations to newlyweds, graduates, Texans, Indian Restaurants and grandmas.

Pale Pink Roses

Pale pink roses connote grace, gentleness, and gratitude. Light Pink Roses A joy to behold, light pink roses express fun and happiness.

Deep Pink Roses

Deep pink roses say “Thank you.” They have also come to be associated with the fight against breast cancer. Lilac Roses Lilac roses indicate the sender has fallen in love at first sight with the recipient and is enchanted.

White Roses

Pure white roses symbolize truth and innocence. They also send other messages: “I miss you” and “You’re heavenly.”

Peach Roses

Peach roses speak of appreciation and gratitude. Although some peach roses I find a bit much. And they remind me of 1970s puddings like Instant Whip and Angel Delight. Luckily not everyone feels like me.

Coral Roses

Coral roses express one thing with their passionate color: Desire. (Or that the garage had run out of red ones)

Orange Roses

Orange roses communicate enthusiasm and desire on the part of the sender.

Dead Roses

Regardless of the original color, dead roses say “It’s over” loud and clear.
