Valentine’s Day, What the Color of my Roses Means?

I remember my grandma telling me about the meaning of a rose’s color for Valentine’s Day, she said, “Always remember that red roses means he loves you, pink roses means he sees you as a friend”. So when my boyfriend at the time bought me my first red rose from a guy at a stoplight, I couldn’t help but putting a big smile on my face, and thinking ‘aww, he just said he loves me! or at least that I’m more than a friend.’

Since roses are really popular for the upcoming holiday, Valentine’s day, I thought about going deeper and look for the popular meaning of roses’s colors. You don’t want to give a passionate looking red rose to a friend, right? So check out this info, it might just save you from one of those awkward moments.

Rose Colors and Meanings

Interesting Facts:

  • Purple roses express that the giver seeks to convey that he or she has fallen in love with the recipient at the very first sight.
  • Send yellow roses to congratulate someone you love. They are great to celebrate new beginnings and proudly laud an accomplishment.
  • Blue roses symbolizes mystery or the impossible, they don’t exist in nature as a result of genetic limitations.

    I always thought that red and pink roses mean the same thing, turns out they don’t. Nice info 🙂

    • Well, both of them means somebody cares about you 🙂 I love the color psychology behind it, but I personally would prefer a couple of pink or coral roses instead of red ones 🙂

  2. Pink roses are my fave, but I think I’d love to get some blue roses too. They just look really cool, but I guess that’s because they are genetically enhanced.

    I’ve always heard yellow roses mean jealousy. But upon second thought, that doesn’t even make any sense. Also, I am honestly in love with white roses 🙂
