What the colours red and white mean in flowers

Published July 25th, 2012

Often symbolizing unity, red and white are also, when in a rose, the flower symbol for England. If you aren’t trying to praise Britannia, however, adding a little white to your red bouquet, whether as separate flower or in striped or variegated types, incorporates innocence into the deep and passionate love of red.

Putting these two colors not only makes one fall in love in a completely new way, but also reinstates the respect you have for that one you love. Red and white roses are extremely bold, yet not over bearing. This flower has a great combination to get the point across but to do it in a way that won’t seem harsh
