A nice bouquet of fresh red roses is an outstanding way to convey your sympathy and love. Very few other gifts even if presented from pure heart can get the same reaction. Roses are at the very least 35 million years old, and among them red roses are the most precious. There are 150 unique species expanded on 6 of the 7 continents.
For over than 5000 years people have been growing roses. Not only were they grown for their charm, they were made use of for their oils as natural medicines and perfumed fragrances. Besides, flowers were often used at celebrations as birthdays, weddings, parades and other important events as confetti. They were tossed in the air to show the significance of celebration.
The Romans, who were widely known for their classy preferences and important place of love in their lives, began the practice of gifting red roses to lovers. In stylish and romantic Victorian times, vivid red roses were amongst the flowers which were used to share feelings that could not be otherwise expressed by word or touch. It was throughout these Victorian times that several flowers of specific colours began to acquire secret meanings.
It is not just the shade of red roses that bring considerable significance, you can send a different message depending on exactly how open or shut the blossom blooms are. By presenting a bouquet of roses that are unopened, you are sending an icon of youth and innocence. If the bouquet of red roses is comprised of totally opened roses, the love is in its bloom. It is also common to gift such bouquets for an anniversary of marriage.
Not only the flower holds certain meaning it is, amount of flowers also plays an important role. One single bud collected together conveys the message of simplicity, which is why it is common to be present in early stages of relationships or just to show sympathy. A bouquet consisting of one dozen fresh red roses sends the message, “I still love you as before”.
