Roses are a classic and elegant flower to give as a gift, so Mother’s Day roses are a perfect way to show Mom just how much you love and appreciate her. The great thing about roses is that each colors has a meaning, and so you can have fun in picking the color of roses you present to Mom.

Here are a few popular rose colors, and their meanings:

The Reds

True red roses mean romantic love and beauty, dark red or burgundy roses mean unconcscious beauty. A single red rose also conveys utmost devotion. Is the love of your life also a mom? Show her how much you love her with a bouquet of beautiful red roses.

The Pinks

A true pink rose means appreciation, a dark pink rose similarly means gratitude and a light pink flower means admiration and joy. Let Mom know how much you appreciate her with a bouquet that blends all three shades of pink!

The Oranges

Orange flowers can mean both enthusiasm and desire, so you may want to be choosy in terms of to whom you gift this flower. It might be safest to stick with the love in your life who is also a mother.
