Rose: in the October Flower Agenda

The Queen of Flowers presents herself in all her glory during October. The incomparable beauty of the rose makes her a special guest for all occasions and interiors. The public will be seduced by this flower on with inspirational images and information. Surprise your customers by showing off all the beautiful varieties of roses available.  

Origin of the rose 
The Greeks, Romans and Egyptians discovered the beauty of the romantic rose many thousands of years ago; we had to wait until the 16th century. The popularity of the rose is growing continuously, and every year there are dozens of new varieties added to the range.

Shapes and colours
Red, white, yellow, pink, purple, orange and green. Bright or pastel, bicoloured or multicoloured. Big blooms, small blooms, short stems, long stems, single or spray. When you’re feeling especially romantic, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer choice of roses on offer, and every year new varieties are presented. What about a grassheart rose?  

This flower represents love and trust, and the thorns indicate that love is not always a bed of roses. Red roses in particular are inextricably linked to love, but did you know that every colour has its own meaning?  

  • Red: love and respect.
  • White: true love, purity, dignity, chastity.
  • Pink: happiness, gratitude, virtue.
  • Orange: longing, appreciation, sympathy.
  • Yellow: intimate friendship, solidarity.

The combination of colours and the combination with other flowers also have a particular meaning. A red rose combined with a white rose expresses the desire to always be together. Many roses in a bouquet means gratitude, and one single rose in a big mixed bouquet means: “you are my one and only love!”
