Here at The Million Roses, we’re firm believers that there is simply no “wrong” color for a rose. From white roses to black roses, to every shade in between, our hands-on research has shown us time and again that they all earn top ranks on the “very scientific” scale of beautiful! To be certain, classic colors like red roses, yellow roses, and pink roses will always be among our most popular, but there are some less traditional colors most certainly worth considering for their uniqueness. And today, we’re shining the well-deserved spotlight on gorgeous green roses!
Green Rose Meaning
“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”– Pedro Calderon de la Barca
While many people choose rose colors based simply on personal preference, others like to align the color with its common symbolism, or meaning. For green roses, there is no shortage of symbolic association, calling on sentiments ranging from fertility to good fortune. A color commonly associated with nature, growth, youthfulness, and financial success, green roses make a perfect gift choice for someone about to embark on a new and exciting adventure.
The most vibrant, summery, citrusy shade in the green color spectrum, our lime green roses are a popular pick for ladies who lean toward bolder and brighter hues. The resurgence in popularity for all things neon has earned our lime green lovelies some new fans, and we love how perfectly placed they look in wildly different settings, from eclectic, bohemian living rooms, to crisp, white modern kitchens. Just like limes themselves, there is something refreshing and optimistic about this color, making them a perfect pick-me-up.
One of the “big 3” precious gemstones, sharing the spotlight with rubies and sapphires, deeply hued emeralds are among the most valuable gems on earth. Treasured for their rarity and natural beauty, renowned poet and theologian Rumi equated them with love itself, saying:
"Love is an emerald.
Its brilliant light wards off dragons
On this treacherous path.”
While our emerald green roses might not command the same high price tag as rare emeralds themselves, they are equally breathtaking! These daringly dark green roses are stunning alone, or paired with other complementary hues. Consider our emerald green and red roses as a luxurious alternative to Poinsettias for Christmas gifts and centerpieces, or our dark green and gold roses box to celebrate a promotion or other major accomplishment.
Whether we’re looking for ways to reuse, reduce, and recycle, or shopping for a jaw-dropping gift for friends, we’re always looking for new ways to “go green!”
