Flower color Meanings

The symbolic meaning of flowers depends on the flower, but finding any meaning of flowers helps. The meaning of the color of flowers lets you know which to get for your mother and which for your lover. Other sites explore the symbolic meaning of flowers, but Flower-Dictionary.com also explores the meaning of actual colors.

Red | Pink | Orange | Peach | Yellow | Green | Blue | Purple | Lavender | White |
Pink and White | Red and White | Burgundy

Purple

Purple

Purple has always been the color of royalty. Since you won’t be giving flowers to kings and queens any time soon, you can think of the symbolic meaning of flowers in this hue as deep respect and admiration. Success and noble bearing, even without noble titles, deserve the recognition of meaningful purple flowers.

You know that person that you just want to admire. The one who would be king or queen if we had the choice of voting for kings and queens. Well, you can make them feel noble from giving them their own personal purple flower. Just make sure that they are in the right mood for a purple rose.

 

Lavender

Lavender

Lavender is not so stuffy as regal purple. Rather, the meaning of lavender flowers is one of womanhood in her prime. The elegance of lavender reflects the grace and feminine beauty of those who receive it. Modest yet mature, lavender connotes a message of what it really means to be a woman.

Not quit royalty purple but right up there in importance is the lavender flower. Let that person know with a flower that you were just thinking about how well they put themselves together, stay clean, and somehow always seem wiser than everyone else around them. This is where respect can play a big part in someone’s day.

 

White

White

There is an element of purity in white. Whether this is the purity of a bridal bouquet or the pure feeling and completeness shown at a funeral, the symbolic meaning of flowers that come in rich white show reverence and innocence better than any other. White breathes a touch of heaven in its petals.

Not only is there heaven in white roses, there is also innocence that one can only find in this flower. If only everyone could shine with the pure, innocent look that white roses hold. Next time you look at an assortment of flowers notice the white ones, the ones that hold and maintain the beauty of the rest.

 

Pink and White

Pink and White

Tingeing the purity of white with the youthful cheer of pink, flowers in this combination are perfect for holiday or celebratory occasions such as Mother’s Day. The pink lends a degree of grace and gentleness which complements the innocence of a white flower. Together, they will show affection for whoever receives them.

If only it were true what they say that you can win over any girl with a rose. However with a pink and white rose you have a chance, maybe not to completely win her over, but to certainly raise the likelihood of her falling for you. This great flower brings in just the right amount of love at the beginning of relationships.

 

Peach

Peach

Peach offers a little more friendship than the cutesy romance of a straight pink flower. Mixed with orange and yellow, peach confirms gratitude and tender feeling. On its own, the meaning of flowers in this fleshier tone is at once gentler and stronger in thankfulness. Friendship is the true meaning of peach flowers.

This flower is more of the flower you get that friend who has always been there for you, and you are trying to figure out someway to say thank you. Not only does this flower appeal to the friendship, it also strengthens it. Next time you feel like you need to fix a few things in a friendship start out by giving one a peach rose.

 

Red and White

Red and White

Often symbolizing unity, red and white are also, when in a rose, the flower symbol for England. If you aren’t trying to praise Britannia, however, adding a little white to your red bouquet, whether as separate flower or in striped or variegated types, incorporates innocence into the deep and passionate love of red.

Putting these two colors not only makes one fall in love in a completely new way, but also reinstates the respect you have for that one you love. Red and white roses are extremely bold, yet not over bearing. This flower has a great combination to get the point across but to do it in a way that won’t seem harsh.

 

Burgundy - dedicated to Michael Jackson

Burgundy

Michael Jackson, the king of pop, has passed away. Burgundy colored flowers have been dedicated to his legend. He died of a heart attack at his LA home while eating pizza. Send a burgundy colored rose in honor of him: order here.
-----
Be careful with darker shades of red. Oftentimes, a deep crimson—especially in a carnation or a rose—signifies mourning, as at a death. Burgundy, however, with its slightly purplish tone, suggests an unconscious sort of beauty. For the lover who underestimates herself, a burgundy bouquet provides a lush, contemplative color.

If you decide your lover would fall in love with a burgundy rose make sure you let her know the truth about her beauty. Not only is she underestimating herself, but doubt can slip in also. With these flowers it will take care of the doubt, and show what you truly believe.
