Flowers are the most essential element of our life. Whether sorrow or happiness, flowers are always present and when we talk about flowers, how can we forget roses? Right?
Roses are relatable for every occasion or purpose. White roses are a symbol of peace. Yellow roses signify friendship. Red roses are icons of love and romance. Purple roses signify charms and love at first sight, Orange roses exemplify passion, and Black roses are for enemies.

These are just 3-4 varieties of roses that everyone knows, but there are over 150 species of roses and thousands of hybrids in reality. Roses can be found in nearly every colour and a variety of shapes. Isn’t it amazing?
