As rose enthusiasts, we absolutely love Valentine's Day. From single roses to lavish oversize bouquets, roses are the ultimate symbol of love and romance. Synonymous with Valentine's Day since the 17th century, its natural beauty and intoxicating scent have elevated the flower to superior status. With the holiday quickly approaching, we've put together a guide to selecting the best roses for Valentine's Day.
Best Roses for Valentine's Day
With over 150 species of roses in the world, choosing unique roses for Valentine's Day can feel like a daunting task. As a start, we recommend going with timeless long-stemmed roses. Also, Valentine's Day's best roses are the ones given from the heart with a special numeric message. For instance, a single rose represents love at first sight, and for couples who have been together for a long time, it signifies that they're still the one.
Numerous roses can also convey additional meanings. Seven roses signifies a deep infatuation; nine roses is a symbol of eternity; 24 roses shows your loved one know that they're always on your mind, and a grand gesture of devotion can be made by giving that special someone 100 roses.
Best Color Roses for Valentine's Day
Since the Victorian Era, red roses have been used as the ultimate symbol of love. They signify passion and romance and come in a variety of vibrant shades. Red roses are the most fitting flower to send to the one you adore for Valentine's Day.
To show appreciation, we recommend sending pink roses. These are a symbol of gratefulness and can be the perfect choice for good friends or associates.
While red roses are linked to passion, purple roses evoke feelings of royalty used for a storybook, love-at-first-sight romance. If you want to show your lasting love, consider giving purple roses.
Valentine's Day is a great time to celebrate friendship. We recommend giving bright yellow roses, symbolizing optimism and happiness, to someone you care greatly about.
Are you falling in love? Orange is a great way to hint to someone that you have a deep affection for them, other than friendship. If you're ready to be open about your feelings but don't want to declare your love just yet, orange roses are the way to go.
