The Language of Roses:


There are many associations made between the flowers and the range of human emotions. The "language" of flowers is thought to have originated in Persia in the fifteenth century, and was brought to Europe in the eighteenth. In the nineteenth century, this "floral code" became more elaborate, so that complex messages could be sent between people in bouquets. With each flower and colour having a specific meaning, conversations between courting couples could be carried out over extended periods of time without a single word being used.


Specific to roses, the colours can mean the following:
