    I never knew burgundy roses were even more powerful than red roses

      Yes, burgundy roses have a very specific connotation of unconscious beauty. In the Victorian era, deeper rose colors signified deeper passion. Per this schema, burgundy roses signify a very deep passion, even beyond that of red roses.

    My great aunt who raised me pinned a white rose on me to wear to church on mother’s day because my mother was not living. Others had red who had a living mother. Have you ever heard of this? Thank you!

      Yes white flowers (white roses included) are also used for funerals, yet I haven’t heard about people having red rose if their mother is alive, it’s an interesting addition, thank you for sharing!

    I’m glad you explained that red roses have been used throughout history to signify passion and romantic love. My fiance and I want to have some custom faux floral arrangements made to use as centerpieces at our wedding reception. Reading your article made me excited to incorporate red roses into the arrangements to symbolize the love we share!

    It stood out to me when you said that burgundy roses show a deep passion and romantic devotion to someone. My brother asked for my help choosing a floral arrangement for his wife on their five year anniversary next month. Thanks for teaching me about the meaning of different colors and flowers so I can be more informed when looking at his arrangement options!
