Meaning of Yellow Roses

Apr 12, 2008
When you call one of your favorite florists to make a flower delivery to that special person, before ordering consider the color, meaning and history of some of your choices. We all know that red flowers express the "I love you" concept but consider what others are. Like white for purity

As far back as Shakespeare we know plants and flowers had special meanings since Ophelia talks about \"rosemary for remembrance\" and other flowers in one of her speeches. The more modern meanings of flowers arose in the very proper and social restrictive Victorian era when everything was formal and a person could not just openly declare their intentions.

You could give a floral gift instead of sending a passionate letter or just flirting around, which used to be considered quite inappropriate. Some people authored complex explanations as to the significance of specific blossoms and their hues, so when a bouquet came you had to consult these to discover what the blooms were supposed to signify

Roses are often prominently featured in floral arrangements. Popular all-rose bouquets are a great way to say that you care, as well. Red roses stand for romantic love, of course, but did you know that other colors carry different messages? Pink roses are a way to proclaim friendship, and white roses symbolize purity - hence they are often featured in wedding ceremonies and bouquets. Roses that are a combination of one or more hues can carry even more complex meanings

Yellow roses weren't available until the 18th century and before their discovery the only roses there were came in colors from white to red. At first, yellow roses were not thought of in a positive light and they were thought to represent fading love, envy or infidelity. But other yellow flowers were thought to represent sunlight and happiness. Today people send yellow roses as messages of friendship, celebration and joy.

In Texas, yellow roses can also be a message of more passion because of a once popular and still well known song called The Yellow Rose of Texas. While the \"rose\" in the folk song refers to a woman, we know that a rose called Harrison's yellow was developed as a hybrid about the same decade as the first record of the song appeared so the rose may have inspired the song. In any case, Texans are extraordinarily fond of yellow roses to this day
