Finding the perfect color rose for any occasion


Roses are generally thought of as a romantic gesture. However, these beautiful flowers are so much more than that, and with so many different varieties available these days, they can be a thoughtful and meaningful present to suit just about every occasion you can think of.

The question is, how do you choose the perfect rose for a particular occasion, especially when each hue has a different meaning, and there are so many colors to choose from? To help you out, here’s a handy guide to finding the perfect one for the message you want to send.


New Job

If you are celebrating new beginnings, such as a new job, then green roses could be the perfect option for you. Although a slightly unusual color, compared to more traditional types, green roses symbolize life, growth, hope, and renewal. It’s a great choice for new beginnings or bringing calm and balance to someone’s life.


To show your friend you care

Although they once symbolized jealousy, yellow roses now represent friendship and joy. These sunny flowers are perfect for sending to a close friend to brighten their day or let them know you care about them, but avoid sending them to someone you’re interested in romantically as it will indicate that you only think of them as a friend! 


To show your love

Amazingly there are over 30,000 types of roses around the world, from climbing plants to ornamental shrubs, plus of course, the traditional Hybrid Tea varieties with their large flowers and pointed buds. However, if you want to show your partner just how much you love them, then why not gift them with Floribunda roses from Country Garden Roses? Red roses are an enduring symbol of true love and romance. If you want to tell someone you love them, you can’t go wrong with this classic choice.

Thanking a loved one

Slightly gentler than the red rose, pink roses can represent gratitude, elegance, and grace, making them a versatile option that suits many different occasions, including romantic ones, but they are especially good for thanking someone. If you are trying to thank someone and the color pink or red doesn’t feel right, then peach could work. The soft, understated hue of peach roses represents modesty and sincerity, meaning they are perfect for sending as a thank you or for expressing sympathy.

For a wedding


White roses symbolize purity and innocence. They also represent new beginnings, which makes them a great choice for occasions such as weddings and christenings. However, if you want something a little more out there, then the warm and vibrant orange rose stands for enthusiasm and passion and can be great for congratulating someone or for sending at the start of a romantic relationship, which makes it the perfect gift for a wedding.


Making a statement

Whether it’s a declaration of love or admiration, or to symbolize achieving the impossible, blue roses are a unique flower perfect for this occasion. They have an air of mystery about them and are ideal for making a statement.


If you want to make a slightly subtler statement, however, such as sending flowers to someone you have a crush on, then purple roses could be perfect. Often linked to royalty, lavender ones have a separate meaning. They represent love at first sight, so they are perfect for making a romantic gesture for the first time.


So next time you want to send flowers to someone, you can be sure to convey the exact meaning you want through color alone!
