The Meaning of Red Roses
Red is the color of passion. Red roses express love, passion, and respect. Perfect for your Valentine!
Paired with a yellow rose, it means happiness. Paired with a white rose, it means unity.

Dark pink roses express gratitude and appreciation. A perfect gift for that thoughtful friend.

Light pink roses are so sweet. They express grace, admiration, happiness, and friendship.
The Meaning of Coral Roses
Be sure you mean to send this one to the right person LOL. Coral roses have a simple meaning of desire.
The Meaning of Purple Roses
Purple is the color of royalty, but in a rose it expresses love at first sight (I love this!), enchantment, and desire. This is the color for a new romance.
The Meaning of White Roses
White as a color generally implies innocence and purity and in roses, this remains true. A white rose implies purity, innocence, and young love. So sweet!
The Meaning of Yellow Roses
These mean caring, friendship, and gladness. Paired with a red rose, it means happiness.
The Meaning of Orange Roses
Orange is a beautiful, bright color. To me, it means happiness, but the traditional meaning of an orange rose is desire, fascination, and enthusiasm. Interesting!
