Roses with different color

If your partner is a hopeless romantic, look to buy something both lovely and classic. Nothing is more traditional for Valentine’s Day flowers than a dozen long-stemmed red roses. If your budget permits, choose two dozen or even 99 roses to make a really grand gesture.

Considering an alternative to red? Here are the meanings of each of the several rose colours.

  • White – A brand new love. White roses are ideal if you’ve just entered into a relationship as they symbolise new beginnings and a blank page
  • Yellow – Friendship. Who said Valentine’s Day was just for couples? Yellow roses are the perfect way to let your platonic friends know how much they mean to you.
  • Purple – Infatuation and passion. Want to honour a committed partnership? If you and your spouse truly intend to be together “till death do us part”, this is the rose colour for you two!
  • Lavender – A special love. Every love story is unique, no doubt about that, but perhaps there’s something about your love story that’s rarely found in others. Celebrate it with lavender roses if you believe it has its own special twist.
  • Deep pink – Gratitude. Do you believe your partner has recently done something for you for which you are grateful? Use this rose-shaped expression to show your gratitude!
