Fresh Cut Roses

Nov 7, 2007
For many years a red rose has been recognized as a symbol of beauty or love. A splash of color, a fragrant bouquet today, this traditional flower is grown in several different colors and has proved to be many people's favorite.

Meanings of Rose Colors

The various different colors of roses portray different meanings. It is perhaps well known that a deep red rose suggests love and passion however, people are often less aware of the meanings associated with other colors. For example, a white rose symbolizes purity or a happy love. A pink rose can suggest happiness and joy while a yellow rose often brings to mind friendship and joy. A rose in the color pink usually conjures up thoughts of appreciation. An orange rose may be understood as a symbol of desire or enthusiasm. The unusual and rather special lavender color of rose can represent love at first sight or enchantment.

Fresh Cut Roses over the Internet

Today, one may combine the beauty of the rose and the romantic tradition of sending flowers, together with the technology of the Internet. There are services available via the computer and the World Wide Web that can arrange the delivery of delightful roses and other lovely fresh cut flowers. The customer may enjoy the convenience of poring over a colorful selection presented by the floral wholesaler and then making a selection from the comfort of one's own home. What could be better? You can see the roses online and the pictures are so bright and clear that you can almost smell the scent of the roses. You may arrange for a bouquet of fresh cut roses to be delivered, without stepping out of your house.

Preserving the Life of Fresh Cut Roses

Fresh flowers unfortunately do not last forever and their beauty does eventually fade. However, there are ways in which you can contribute to prolonging the life of flowers in a vase. It is recommended to cut the bottom of the stem of the rose, while holding it under water. The water in the vase should be changed every couple of days in order to refresh the flowers. As with other fresh cut flowers, roses should be kept away from sources of heat, out of the direct sunlight and away from fruit. Leaves that will be under water when in a vase should be removed but thorns should not be removed from the rose stem, as this seems to shorten the life span. If a small packet of flower food is delivered with the bouquet for the care of your roses do use it.

It should be remembered that a rose is a very special flower perfect for many occasions and for the special ones in your life. After all, as quoted from 'Romeo & Juliet' by William Shakespeare, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet".
