Roses are among the most common flowers given. They are given to mark special occasions and holidays. They are also given for no reason at all. Roses are versatile, coming in many varieties and colors. It is possible to find roses to suit just about any taste or preference. And a rose is almost always a welcome gift.
However, just like different varieties of flowers, roses have meanings. The color of the rose given represents different things. While there are few people left in today’s societies who actually care about the language of flowers and, more specifically, roses, it is still interesting to know what different colored roses mean. Besides, if you know what the colors mean, and the recipient knows, then you share something that has more meaning than any mere flower.
