DescriptionWhite roses have a special significance and are the ultimate floral expression of innocence, purity, sympathy and spirituality. They evoke sensations of serenity and peace to anyone who beholds them. In the words of John Boyle O’Reilly: “The red rose whispers of passion, and the white rose breathes of love; O, the red rose is a falcon, and the white rose is a dove.” Sometimes called “the flower of light”, one of the meanings of white roses is everlasting love – love stronger than death, an eternal love, undying and all sustaining. Illumination, inspiration and faith, white contain all the colours of the spectrum, and therefore impart wholeness and perfection.
Roses are generally considered to be the world’s most popular flower, due to it’s classic beauty and alluring scent. There are over 100 species of roses and the oldest living plant is thought to be over 1000 years old. Roses also have a vast history, their likeness used as the national emblem of England, being favoured by Cleopatra when Mark Antony came calling, and it is said that Aphrodite, the goddess of love, created the white rose from tears she cried over her beloved Adonis. Roses are also used for medical purposes, cooking ingredients and a rose named ‘Overnight Scentsation’ even traveled into space!
