Why roses?

by webdev

When most people think about sending flowers to a loved one, the first flowers that tend to come to mind are roses, though some might not know why. Many experts speculate that roses are so popular due to their fragrant smell and rich array of colors, while others assume it has to do with what roses symbolize - love. 

In years and centuries past, roses were sent to loved ones to let them know someone was thinking about them. Many young ladies today still hold onto the flowers their significant others have given them. Some women even hang their roses on their walls as decorations once they have bloomed and dried out.

Although roses can symbolize love, different colored roses also have other meanings. Yellow roses stand for friendship and joy, pink represent love, gratitude and appreciation, while orange varieties symbolize desire and passion. Show your leading lady how special she is to you by sending her rose bouquets like Teleflora's Rose Rapture.
