    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!
