What did your Valentine's Day Roses Mean?

Now that Valentine’s Day has come & gone, I’m sure you have vases & bouquets of beautiful roses on your office desk or at home. It’s too bad those beauties don’t live forever. But in the meantime, as you admire their beauty, wouldn’t you like to know what the different colors mean? I know I did…Here’s what I found…


Red Roses
Red roses convey a simple message: "I love you". This makes them the ultimate symbol of romantic love and the most popular choice on Valentine’s Day. Other meanings for red roses include desire, passion, courage, respect, beauty and sincerity. A red rosebud symbolizes purity and loveliness.

Coral Roses
Coral roses speak of desire and passion.

Lilac or Lavender Roses
Lilac roses reveal love at first sight or enchantment.

Orange Roses
Orange roses communicate desire, enthusiasm and fascination. They make an excellent choice for a new relationship that you wish to pursue further.

Peach Roses
Peach roses express gratitude, appreciation, admiration or sympathy. They can also convey sociability and friendship and send the message "Let's get together". A pale peach rose symbolizes modesty.

Pink Roses
In general, pink roses symbolize grace, gentility and happiness and express appreciation and gratitude.

Pale Pink Roses
Pale pink roses connote grace, joy, gentility and gratitude.

Light Pink Roses
Light pink roses suggest happiness and fun. Like all pink roses, they also convey admiration and appreciation.

Deep Pink Roses
Deep pink roses say "Thank you". They also express appreciation, admiration, sincerity and sympathy.

White Roses
Second only to red roses in popularity, white roses symbolize truth and innocence. They also represent silence, secrecy, reverence, humility, youthfulness and charm. You can use them to say, "You're heavenly", "I miss you" and "I’m worthy of you". A white rosebud symbolizes girlhood.

Yellow Roses
Yellow roses symbolize friendship and freedom, so are not specifically romantic roses. They convey congratulations, joy, gladness and delight. But they also promise a new beginning, say "Welcome back" and "Remember me", and can convey jealousy and caring. Yellow roses with red tips convey friendship and falling in love.

Dead Roses
Dead roses in any color convey "It's over!"
