A Rose is a Rose?
There are many varied definitions of what each color of rose symbolizes. Florists and floral experts alike will agree that flowers hold the meaning we give them and the feeling with which they are given.
With this in mind, there are some common folklore associations relevant to each color of rose. You may find other lists that suggest different meanings for each color. This is because there is no "Definitive" list for rose color meanings. This guide is merely to suggest colors for certain occasions/expressions.
Red Roses- Love, Respect, Courage
Yellow Roses- Joy, Gladness, Freedom, Friendship
Pink/Peach Roses- Gratitude, Admiration, Sympathy
White Roses- Reverence, Purity, Innocence, Peace
Coral/Orange Roses- Fascination, Enthusiasm,
Lavender Roses- Enchantment
Red and White Roses- Unity
Red, Pink & White Roses- Trinity
Remember, roses, or any other flowers for that matter, also hold the meaning we give them and the feeling with which they are given. That is what makes them special. So with your sentiment, any flowers will send the message that you are thinking of the recipient regardless of the color.
Always contact a real florist to get the best value & service.

Starting a Shade Garden...
The shade garden can be exploding with color and texture. No matter how much shade is in your landscape, the right flowers, plants, bushes and bulbs will grow in this area when given a chance. As there are various types of shade, you will need to choose the plants that are 'right' for the type of shade you have: partial, dense, full, or filtered shade. In starting a shade garden, one of the easiest shade gardens will be the filtered shade garden. What you need to do first is look at the trees or bushes that are making this area a filtered shade garden. Pruning off the lower branches on taller bushes and on the tree will allow additional light into your garden. Because you are planning a filtered shade garden, you do want some amount of sunlight in that garden below the tree.
