Flower Guide: Roses

A rose can have many different meanings, depending on the color. Red symbolizes love and romance. Pink represents grace, elegance, and admiration. Yellow stands for warmth, happiness, joy, and friendship. Orange reflects passion and desire. Peach symbolizes sincerity. Lavender reflects love at first sight. Purple symbolizes enchantment and magnetism. White embodies innocence and purity, honor and reverence.
