During the Victorian era, long before we turned to text messages, emails, and phone calls to communicate, floriography, otherwise known as the language of flowers, played a major role in how people expressed their feelings.
Today, we continue the tradition of sending flowers, but many of us no longer know the significance behind the blooms. Every flower has a special meaning to convey exactly how one feels towards the specific receiver or occasion. To make matters even more complex, the color of the flower also affects its meaning.
Since roses are one of the world’s most popular type of flower, let’s figure out what the different colors signify:
As you probably already know, the coveted red rose signifies love, making it the number choice to send to a lover.
The light pink-hued rose is a symbol for “grace,” which makes it perfect to gift to a close friend.
If you want to express gratitude or show appreciation, dark pink blooms are the perfect choice.
The soft, pale peach rose stands for modesty.
The vibrant orange bloom represents fascination.
