Rosa spp.Rosa is the Latin meaning for “a flower”.
Our weekly herb series will continue through out the month of February with roses. The orange rose is burning with passion! If you want to send a message declaring your fascination and desire, this is the color to choose! Adding a red rose, to declare your true love, would certainly be an ideal combination!
In an earlier post, I mentioned the Language of Flowers from 1846, when each flower, and the numbers of flowers in a bouquet, represented a message. The chart below will give you a framework for choosing flowers but you can also use your own creative combinations, along with other flowers and herbs, such as rosemary for remembrance. Most florists are familiar with the symbolism of flowers and can help you create the perfect bouquet to send a one of a kind message.
