Orange Roses: History, Meaning, and Symbolism
Did you know that these rose arrangements might be the perfect bouquet to send your crush? That’s because they often stand for fascination - someone you can’t stop thinking about because of all their interesting personality quirks.
Orange rose arrangements that take on a deep orange, almost red color can mean you’re not only fascinated by the person but that you also have a great passion or desire for them. It’s a way to “light” the orange flame of love and hope it takes root with the object of your affections.
Orange Roses Can Mean Congratulations For an Achievement
In non-romantic settings, orange roses’ meaning of fascination might extend to a person whose work you really admire - like a business mentor or a talented artist. And those aren’t the only things orange flowers’ meaning can convey. While many don’t know it - orange flower arrangements can symbolize enthusiastic pride. So, if you’ve got a budding actor or musician in the family, consider bringing an orange rose arrangement to their next performance as a salute to their achievements. Likewise, you might decide to get orange flowers to graduation or offer them to a co-worker who has recently been promoted. The same meanings extend to other shades of orange, such as coral, salmon, or peach - though, like with other flowers, the intensity of the color is meant to reflect the power of emotion. So while you might give deep orange rose arrangements to a family member of whom you’re proud, coral or peach roses may be appropriate for an acquaintance at work or a casual friend.
Orange Rose Can Mean Strength and Hope
One of the lesser-known meanings of orange roses is actually an extension of pride - the wish for someone not to give up or persevere. This is also tied to orange roses’ meaning of energy and strength but can easily be adapted to say, “I believe in you. Keep going. You’ll get there.” Many occasions suit this expression, from someone dealing with a challenging illness to someone working hard to achieve goals ranging from earning a college degree to weight loss to running their first marathon.
Orange Rose Arrangements are Perfect Centerpiece for Halloween and Thanksgiving
The broad range of pink roses’ meaning also means they’re suitable to give anyone without worrying that the gift would be misconstrued as a romantic gesture or anything other than a gesture of grace and beauty.
