Colors of roses and their meanings

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Roses are the flowers that come to mind when we associate Valentine's Day.

Some people, though, really believe that the rose you choose can say a lot about your relationship.

"You better watch out which color you buy because they all mean something different," said Emily Lux, florist.

White colored roses signify purity, sympathy, spirituality, innocence and eternal devotion.

Purple colored roses signify love at first sight, first love or enchantment.

Orange colored roses signify passion, desire or enthusiasm.

Pink colored roses signify love or appreciation.

Red colored roses also signify love, but the hue means everything.

"The darker the red the more intense the love," Lux said.

But if a man or woman gives you yellow rose, it's him or her, not you. It's also not love. Yellow colored roses signify friendship.

"He's just your friend," Lux said.

If you are not sure where your relationship is going ? It's a good idea to go with a safe bet - two-toned colored roses.

"The two-tone ones are a safe bet," Lux said. "Could mean a variety of things."
