Our gorgeous Pink Indulgence Bouquet - the perfect Valentine's Day gift
Have you ever asked yourself what the varying colours of roses represent? Well wonder no more, as in fact, each rose colour does have a significant different meaning; and they can be used in your bouquets to send to family, friends and loved ones expressing a variety of emotions.
Below we list a few of the various colours available – and explain what each one means:
It is universally understood that red roses mean love and passion. A deep red rose is often thought to mean that you are ready for commitment, and in fact can symbolise a deeper bond than lighter coloured red roses. Whatever your message of love is, red roses are always seen as a big gesture to send to your partner.
The pink rose symbolises gratitude and admiration. The perfect choice for you to send to people you most appreciate. As with red roses, the darker the pink rose the higher you are expressing your appreciation, lighter pink roses are used more towards joy and gratitude.
1. Do freesias grow every year?
If you live somewhere where it either never (or rarely) freezes then yes, your freesias will grow back. They may even multiply by spreading seeds so you could have a garden bursting with even more colour every year!
If you live in a colder climate where freezing in the winter is likely, the bulbs could risk freezing and rotting in the ground. You can dig up the freesia bulbs just before winter and save them for next year.
2. How long can freesia flowers last?
Freshly cut freesias can last up to three weeks.
If your freesias are planted outdoors, they will typically bloom in spring/summer. With the proper care during the growing stage freesia flowers can last into the autumn months before they start to fade.
