A rose is a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa, in the family Rosaceae, or the flower it bears. There are over three hundred species and thousands of cultivars. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing, or trailing, with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Wikipedia

The color of a rose also affects its meaning. Each color offers a distinct and different meaning. The following are some commonly associated meanings for each color.

Red Rose

The red rose has come to be the ultimate symbol to express romantic love. There’s no more frequent symbol of love and beauty in Western art and literature than red roses.

Pink Rose

Pink roses are appropriate for sending thanks, cheering up a friend, or recognizing a romantic occasion. The pink rose has always been associated with feelings of love and gratitude.

White Rose

White roses are suited to reverent occasions, and are fitting way to honor a friend or loved one in recognition of a new beginning or a farewell. The pure white color conveys respect to new starts and expresses hope for the future. Historically, the white rose symbolized innocence and purity. This is how it became associated with weddings and bridal bouquets. In modern times, the white rose has retained its associations with both pure love and formal ceremony, which makes it a many-purposed recognition of unions and ceremonial occasions, such as anniversaries, christenings and graduations.

Yellow Rose

Yellow roses are considered the perfect way to toast friends, lift spirits and send a general wish for well-being. Because of the long association with the sun and its life-giving warmth, yellow is the age-old color for warm feelings of friendship and optimism. In many Eastern cultures, the color yellow represents joy, wisdom and power.

Orange Rose

Orange roses are considered a passionately intense way to say thanks, congratulations or I love you. Blending the friendly meaning of the yellow rose with the true-love meaning of the red rose, brought about a much subtler meaning of love emerging from friendship.
