Red: It's no secret the red rose is the symbolism of love. Valentine’s Day wouldn't exist without this dramatic and iconic bloom. This is the ultimate symbol of romance and passion, the red rose also conveys respect and the creative spirit of love. Representing true love stronger than thorns, the red rose is known throughout the world as the symbol of love. 

White: Representing, humility, purity and innocence, the white rose is associated with weddings and funerals . Also symbolizing truth and reverence, it sends a message of loyalty and says "I am worthy of you. "

Yellow: The color that represents friendship, joy and caring. An arrangement of these bright blossoms conveys warmth, gladness and affection. 

Pink: Symbolizing gentility, femininity, elegance and refinement, the pink rose also carries various meanings depending on its shade. A deeper pink expresses gratitude and appreciation, while softer/pale shades imply grace and gentleness, admiration and happiness. 

Orange: With an array of warm, vibrant tones, orange roses represents enthusiasm and desire. If you want to express admiration and attraction - with an underlying message of passion and excitement then orange is the color you would want.
