"The red rose whispers of passion, and the white rose breathes of love; O, the red rose is a falcon, and the white rose is a dove." John Boyle O'Reilly
The global popularity of roses makes them one of the most demanded flower varieties. They are like the A-list celebrity everyone wants to be photographed with. Luckily, unlike the celebrities, our roses need way less maintenance and don't create any drama. If you're confused by all the colours, sizes and varieties, here is a quick guide to get you out of the floral jungle: RED - red roses are most commonly associated with romance and are Cupid-approved floral gifts for Valentine's Day or anniversary. YELLOW - yellow roses are normally reserved for friendships or when you want to cheer someone up. PINK - give pink roses to your mum on Mother's Day. They are often given between female friends. WHITE - white roses are most commonly used in christenings and weddings as they represent new beginnings and purity. They are also often used as sympathy or funeral flowers. The price of roses is very much dependent on the quality - long stem luxury roses will be always more expensive than the basic standard rose type. Have you picked your favourite yet?
