Orange Roses

Orange Roses

This name of this orange is unknown to me. It was a literal explosion of color. Orange roses are relatively new to rose growing (compared to the other colors) first making the scene in the early 1900’s after breeders combined yellow and traditional red roses. They soon became very popular. The color palette for orange roses ranges from red-orange to soft coral and the flowers are used to symbolize an attraction or the desire to peruse a relationship with the recipient. They an also signify pride and can be given for graduations and other accomplishments.

I am glad that it is Friday. Hopefully the weather won’t be as hot and humid over the weekend. Have a nice weekend.

I am not terribly fond of roses, even though I have a few, but they are nearly all orange.
