Posted on: February 16, 2010


February 14, 2010 was Valentines Day and you have probably received roses and presents from your lover or maybe your secret admirer. You have read the lovely message that came along with the present or the bouquet of flowers but please don’t skip the important meanings behind it all.  Roses and love have both been linked closely together symbolizing passion and romance. However, there are meanings associated with the different colors and numbers or roses. Here is the list of the meanings and hopefully, this will help you find the hidden message your lover is trying to convey.

Red roses- romantic love, enduring passion, creative spirit of love

White roses- humility, purity and innocence

Yellow roses- friendship, joy and caring

Pink roses- gentleness, admiration and happiness

Orange roses- passion and excitement

Lilac/ purple roses- love at first sight

Multi-colored roses- happiness, young love

As you can see, every color has its own meaning and symbols behind it. For hundreds of years now, roses have conveyed messages without words. Choosing a specific rose color is sometimes not enough to express one’s innermost thoughts so the number of stems can also add meanings to the defined colors of the beautiful roses.

3 Roses- I love you

9 Roses- Eternal love, together as long as we live

11 Roses- You are the one I love most in my life
