The Meaning Of A Solitary Rose

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Because a single rose is able to symbolize all manifestations of love, it is the flower of choice for most.

A single rose says it so much better!

This non-verbal language of a solitary rose translates into any language, and transcends all barriers. It’s also very useful for guys who often can’t find the right words to convey their love. πŸ™‚


  • A single rose can say “I Love You.”
  • A solitary rose can say “I’m Jealous.”
  • A single rose can say “I’m Sorry.”
  • One rose can say “It’s Over.”
  • A single rose can say “Thank You.”
  • A solitary rose can say “We’re Friends Forever.”
  • One rose can say “You Are Beautiful.”
  • A solitary rose can say “You are Pure.”
  • A single rose can say “You Bring Joy to My Life.”

… and much more!

Single Red Rose

But what do the different colors of a single rose mean?

  • Most people already know that a single red rose simply means “Love”.
  • One solitary yellow rose generally means dying love or platonic love. But in some countries it can also symbolize jealousy and infidelity, so watch out!
  • Get a blue rose to tell someone he/she is a mystery to you (“mysterious”).
  • A green rose conveys calm.
  • Guys, if you screw up, send a single white rose – it says “sorry”! But it can also mean innocence, purity, secrecy, friendship, reverence and humility.
  • If you can get your hands on one black rose*, it will tell the recipient that you have a slavish devotion for him/her (as a true black fresh rose is impossible to produce). But, be careful, as some people also use a black rose to send a message that a relationship is over!
  • A solitary burgundy rose tells the other party you find them very beautiful.
  • If you’d like to show your passion for your lover, get a single orange rose.
  • One yellow rose with red tips symbolizes friendship, or falling in love.
  • To show admiration or sympathy, give a light pink rose.
  • When you send someone a purple rose, it conveys protection (paternal/maternal love).
  • A solitary pink rose conveys grace and gentle feelings of love.
  • If you wish to thank someone, you can send one dark pink rose, as it symbolizes gratitude.

Tip: Always attach a card to your single rose, explaining the meaning behind it – just to be on the safe side. πŸ˜‰

*Often, fresh-cut roses may not be available in all the colors (particularly, black), so a good idea is to then give a single preserved rose or solitary sprayed novelty rose instead.

About the Rose

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

Probably the world’s most well-known and popular flower, the rose has a place in history, culture and literature, unequaled by any other plant.

There are hundreds (perhaps, even, 1000’s) of species and varieties of roses, consisting of shrubs, trailing plants, compacts, hybrids, mini roses, 20ft climbers, and more! Not to mention the hundreds of available color varieties, sure to please everyone’s taste.

Roses are well-loved as exquisite perfumed ornamental plants, both outdoors and indoors, but it’s their cut-flowers that has made them popular throughout the ages. Fact is, a rose can say so much without words and, often, words are unnecessary or, indeed, would be redundant, superfluous or, even, detrimental. So instead, opt for roses to convey the message you can’t, won’t, or shouldn’t give, and let the fragrant beauty of the rose do it for you. Rose meanings are well-understood, especially since Victorian times, and the symbolism of the right rose color will be instantly understood.

No wonder the rose has inspired so many poets, and enchanted so many hearts. πŸ˜‰
