For many people, roses are a traditional way to show your love. The unique class of beautiful purple roses takes it to a higher level. The color purple is associated with royalty, magic, mystery, and even piety. Throughout history, wearing purple was reserved for royalty or bishops of the church. That makes purple roses a gift fit for a king or queen.
Meaning of Purple Roses
In general, giving purple roses indicates a magical and enchanting love. More specifically, lavender roses signify love or enchantment at first sight, while deep purple roses mean a more enduring and deeper love. Therefore, lighter colored purple roses are appropriate for new relationships, and darker purple roses are perfect for wedding anniversaries and long-term relationships.
Include a reference to the magical, enduring, or enchanting characteristics of your feelings in the card you attach to the roses. Let the recipient know that they are the king or queen of your heart.
History of Purple Roses
Purple roses are mentioned for the first time in the 1800s. They do not occur naturally, but rather they are a hybrid between standard European roses and a rose variety from China. Colors of purple roses range from pastel to bright to dark. They can have pink, blue, red, or gray undertones. Typical colors are lavender, lilac, and plum.
