Every bloom color has a meaning for the right person and relationship it is intended for, just as every person and relationship requires its own color of rose. In this article, we'll help you figure out how to match the perfect rose to your Valentine.
Why Give Roses on Valentine's Day?
The tradition of sharing roses with the one you love on Valentine's Day began with a king of Sweden in the late 17th century. He learned the language of flowers on a trip to the Ottoman Empire, where Persians had a tradition of communicating with flowers. Each type of flower, as well as each color, communicated a different, secret message to the recipient.
Pick the Rose that Best Suits Your Valentine
Red is probably the most popular rose color on Valentine's Day. These blooms should be given to your tried and true whom you respect. This color signifies that you find the recipient beautiful, strong, determined, passionate and independent—and that your love will stand the test of time.

Sometimes you have long-term goals in mind on Valentine's Day. If you want your rose color to tell your lover that you hope for new beginnings and bright futures, opt for a soft, yellow bloom. It is intended for someone who is joyful, a ray of sunshine to be around, and brightens your day, just like the sun.

If you are in a position where you are trying to woo a special someone and convince them they should go on a date with you, blue is the best color. Its rarity signifies that you find that person equally rare and seemingly unattainable. If you really admire your partner or you hope to win over the heart of someone you find so rare and unique, you may want to choose a blue rose.

Similar to blue roses in their rarity, a purple bloom also indicates that you are infatuated with someone you nearly worship. Purple roses might be a sign of fleeting infatuation than a long and loving relationship; however, sending purple roses could also lead to the start of more lasting feelings of love, paving the way for future gifts of pink, red, and orange roses.

Obviously, these are usually not the most common on Valentine's Day. Black roses symbolize death and farewell. This color may be a good option for a partner that is going through a tough time or grieving.
That said, if you have an alternative partner who goes against the grain, black roses could be a great way to tell them you're present, in tune with their edge, and embracing everything about who they are.
