Here are our Florist’s Top 5 favourite rose colours and their meanings (see our beautiful flower essay blog post) and The Flower Expert. The Flower Trolley parked outside Cape Grace will be selling Valentine’s bouquets all week and a range of other stunning bouquets all year!
1. Red Roses
The red rose is an unmistakable expression of love. It’s a sign of devotion and desire and deep emotion. You don’t give a red rose to just anyone and if they come in a bunch of 12, then you know it’s true love!
The summery colour of yellow roses express feelings of joy, warmth, caring and friendship, but not romantic love!
There’s a certain elegance and grace about pink roses and while a deep pink rose can be used to convey gratitude or appreciation, a light pink rose indicates sweetness and innocence.
4. White Roses
White is all about new beginnings and the purity, chastity and innocence conveyed by white roses make them perfect for a bride’s bouquet. White flowers can also convey sympathy or humility and spirituality.
Mixed coloured roses come from the confused romantic who hasn’t quite worked out how they feel, but sure do like you enough to send you roses.
