SPECIAL OCCASIONS: VALENTINE'S DAY

The Bloomable Flower Colour Guide
16 January 2018


Words by James

We are fortunate to live in a world full of exquisite flowery beauty. For hundreds of years’ flowers have been celebrated for their harmonious, striking and mysterious nature. In particular, the rose stands alone as one of the most attractive and seductive blooms. Its rich symbolism has been at the heart of romance the world over.

The rose variety in all its unique and diverse texture and colour convey a message of deeper purpose, hope and majesty. Regardless of colour, their unique beauty and subtle fragrance convey a message guaranteed to elicit delight from the recipient and envy from others. If you’re looking for a way to add a little extra sentiment to your floral gift of affection this Valentine’s Day or any other day, we’ve put together a list of the meanings associated with the different colours of roses.


Love, Passion and Romance

Red: Love, Passion and Romance

A universal symbol of romance and true love, the red rose represents true heartfelt connection and a passion for life. Evoking sumptuous tenderness and erotic feelings, the colour red is energetic and lush. As the warmest colour around, red is full of blooming vitality and confident behaviour.


Love, Appreciation, Gratitude

Pink: Love, Appreciation and Gratitude

If flowers have taught us anything it is that appreciation opens many doors in life. Being grateful for who we are, what we have and where we are on our life journey allows us to be at peace with the process so we can let go. The colour pink is graceful, sweet and poetically romantic. The best alternative to Valentine’s Day red is the calming, relaxing, unconditionally loving...pink.


Peace, Enchantment, Serenity

Lavender: Peace, Enchantment and Serenity

The colour purple has a traditional association with royalty and yet there is a very sensual, soft feeling associated with this colour that is very enchanting, serene and humble in its peaceful nature. In this regard, shades of lavender or lilac roses have a way of bringing arrangements and bouquets together in extraordinary ways.


Desire, Creativity, Relationship

Orange: Desire, Creativity and Relationship

If you combine yellow and red you arrive with orange, a warm and creative colour that expresses the true beauty of flowers and the bridge between friends. It is a rose colour that is often combined with red in beautiful bouquets and arrangements.


Longevity, Friendship, Connection

Yellow: Longevity, Friendship and Connection

The feeling of sunny, bright and happy days and good, honest friendship has been closely associated with the colour yellow, making these roses excellent for cheering people up. Yellow roses also represent the platonic love felt in friendships of the heart.


Purity, Innocence, Sympathy

White: Purity, Innocence, Sympathy

As a very sacred colour white roses may be associated with true love, honest reflection within a relationship and bridal elegance. Symbolic of unity, virtue and innocence white flowers and roses in particular are very gentle blooms with so much kindness.

Flowers have filled our lives with so much joy, hope and happiness. We’re really blessed to be able to be surrounded by them. Shop our beautiful range of exquisite bouquets, arrangements and gifts. Every order you place with us supports our independently owned Partner Florists based countrywide.
