The hustle and bustle of the busy wedding season is upon us. The variety of flowers flowing in and out of our cooler is absolutely exciting. The one flower that truly has earned its time in the spot light is the Rose. The Rose is also the birth flower for June.
Botanical Name: Rosa
From earliest recordings of flowers the rose was thought to represent love, magic, hope and mystery. Before the sixteenth century, there were very few roses in the West and they rarely bloomed more than once a season. Greeks believed that Aphrodite, the goddess of love, gave a rose to Eros, the god of love.
Roses have many flower meanings according to their color.
Red - Love, Passion
White - Humility, Purity, Innocence
Yellow - Friendship, Caring
Pink - Admiration, Joy, Gratitude
Orange - Enthusiasm, Desire
Lavender - Enchantment, Love at first sight
Green - Harmony, Fertility
Roses are great flowers to use for wedding because they are available all year and come in a wide variety of colors. They also are excellent for boutonnieres and corsages because the hold up very well out of water and will stay looking fresh throughout your event.
