The Language of Flowers and Roses

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

Roses come in so many colors that you can pretty much take your pick. Floral designers normally choose roses based on the color scheme of the design. In the language of flowers the colors alone can also express different emotions or moods. This means certain colors are especially suited to specific occasions. Here are some of the most popular rose colors and the message they convey.

To express sympathy, choose apricot or peach-toned roses for floral designs.

As a thank you or for other expressions of appreciation or gratitude, there are several suitable rose colors. These include pale pink, dark pink, and apricot or peach.

Light pink roses stand for gentleness and grace.

When you wish to convey admiration and fascination for someone special, there are several suitable rose colors. These include orange and peach or apricot.

Depending on the event being celebrated, there are different colors to use for expressing congratulations. It depends on what sort of landmark celebration is taking place. For graduates and new mothers as well as newlyweds, yellow roses would be a good choice.

For events that have religious or spiritual significance, white roses would be a good choice. This color expresses purity and reverence.

White roses would also be a good choice for childrenís events since this color conveys innocence.

For different milestones along lifeís way, yellow roses are very suitable. These convey a sense of freedom and new beginnings. So, they would be great for folks celebrating retirement and new jobs.

Not all roses are solid colors. They come in bicolors as well. With these, it becomes a little challenging to express an unambiguous message by color alone. So the best approach is to glance at the bicolor rose and see if one color is most prominent and use that shade as the intended message. If one
color isnít dominant, then it will definitely send a mixed message.

For romantics, nothing beats the simple message of red roses. This represents unabashed passion and romantic love. However, orange is also suitable for such occasions. Orange expresses desire and enthusiasm.

When sending a message regarding courage and respect, red is a suitable rose color.
