My favorite is the purple rose. It just has a unique and magicl beauty to it.The purple rose shimmers beautiful shades of purple with a hint of silver mixed through out it. I just always loved them. My father gave me one single purple rose once. Also, My first Valentine's day with my fiance he bought me a dozen. Purple Rose: The unique beauty of the lavender rose has captured many hearts and imaginations. With their fantastical appearance, lavender roses are a perfect symbol of enchantment. The lavender rose is also traditionally used to express feelings of love at first sight. Orange:With their blazing energy, orange roses are the embodiment of desire and enthusiasm. Orange roses often symbolize passion and excitement and are an expression of fervent romance. A bouquet of orange roses will send a meaningful message. White roses: represent innocence and purity and are traditionally associated with marriages and new beginnings. The white rose is also a symbol of honor and reverence, and white rose arrangements are often used as an expression of remembrance Yellow:The bright, sunny color of yellow roses evokes a feeling of warmth and happiness. The warm feelings associated with the yellow rose are often akin to those shared with a true friend. As such, the yellow rose is an ideal symbol for joy and friendship. Pink:As a symbol of grace and elegance, the pink rose is often given as an expression of admiration. Pink roses can also convey appreciation as well as joyfulness. Pink rose bouquets often impart a gentler meaning than their red counterparts. Red:are the traditional symbol for love and romance, and a time-honored way to say "I love you." The red rose has long symbolized beauty and perfection. A bouquet of red roses is the perfect way to express your deep feelings for someone special.

When it comes down to romance I love the white rose. It's pure and I just love white flowers. They look precious and fragile. The black beauty (so dark a purple rose that it allmost matches black) is very beautiful in real life too.If you mix it with white or red flowers or perhaps slighter light purple shades it can be really impressive. It has a certain prestige, firmity and elegance, a black rose :) That's why I like these colors.

There is such a pureness and truth to the white rose I would have to agree. I know around christmas I love to match red and white ones together. That black beauty sounds lovely .

Thank you, the black beauty really is lovely but it doesn't come around a lot. I believe they are imported from somewhere in Africa?

black beauty rose - a black beauty rose is very rare . It has been told that there are only deep purple ones out there and they look black
I am not sure where you would find one. I am sure they are in some exotic part of the world. I have bee told that they are so rare, and that you will only find the deep dark purple ones who look close to black .

I think that I must agree with you on the elegance and beauty of the purple rose. It doesn't hurt that my favorite color is also purple. However, each rose has it's own unique beauty and well meaning behind it. I was actually going to describe what I see you have basically described above. Thanks for sharing that!

I love the peace rose and tea roses. Peace roses are yellow on one side and pink on the other. Tea roses are the small peppery smelling ones. So enjoyable to have around.

I just love yellow roses. I just always like that they were not the same old red and pink ones that were and are still so commonly given. I did not know the meaning of them until about 10 years ago. Since I found out I think they are even more beautiful because friendship means the most to me.
