The History of Roses: Why Are They So Romantic?

Roses have always been associated with love and devotion. Rose's history dates back centuries. Where did we decide roses become a symbol of love?

Roses are always a good choice for flower arrangements in North Salem, NY, so give Bedford Village Flower Shoppe a call if you want excellent quality.

Aphrodite & Greek Mythology

The rose plant belongs to the Rosaceae family and the genus Rosa, which has over 150 species. Ancient Greek Mythology contains one of the first documented examples of roses expressing love.

Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, was walking through a rose garden that Cupid had pierced with an arrow. Because of Cupid's hand, the roses had developed thorns.

Aphrodite punctured a rose with her thorn, and her blood made the blooms scarlet. It's an intriguing narrative, which might be why humans began romanticizing flowers.

Roman Mythology

Roses were regarded as a sign of passion and concealment. Romans would place flowers in their chambers to symbolize Venus's love and beauty.

Roman emperors also filled baths with rose petals and confetti during parties. Their pleasant scent filled many Romans' apartments.

Christianity & Roses

The rose was a symbol of the Virgin Mary in the Christian church. She is also known as the "rose without thorns" or the "mystical rose." 

Even the term rosary is derived from roses and is represented by a rose garland. Roses represent purity and faith in the Christian religion and have appeared in this context at various historical periods.

Red Roses in the Modern World

Shakespeare notably utilized roses as a metaphor for romantic beauty in his poetry in the narrative of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare also stated that roses were the nicest of flowers, saying, "Of all flowers, methinks rose is best."

Roses' symbolic value has survived until we offer roses to symbolize love, passion, and beauty. There is no more loving gift than purchasing a lovely arrangement of fresh roses for the person you love.

Roses and their symbolism have been seen throughout history, including in Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, and beyond.

We hope that this little rose history illustrates how roses have come to signify love, passion, purity, and other things! Bedford Village Flower Shoppe is the place to go for roses and flower delivery in North Salem, NY.

So, now you get it? Why has the rose been considered a symbol of love since ancient times? Hope you do.

Anyways, here are some occasions that sound completely spaced out without giving roses.

1. To express your love

Flowers are for everyone, not just lovers and couples. Flowers are an excellent way to express your feelings for someone and make them feel valued.

Sending flowers to your loved ones, whether a wife, a husband, a father or a friend, is a wonderful way to communicate your feelings.

2. To make someone smile

Did you notice your lover seemed depressed and lonely? Perhaps your father is stressed out because of the work he has to do at his office. Send them flowers as soon as possible.

Flowers are loved by everyone and can instantly make someone smile. Flowers blooms and fragrant smell may lift anyone's spirits and make them feel wonderful.

3. To apologize

Send flowers if you had a quarrel with someone you care about and found it tough to express "I'm sorry." Even when you know you are wrong, it might be tough to apologize every time with words. Sending flowers may be used to apologize and open up a few communication channels.

4. To show sympathy

When something horrible happens, you may find yourself at a loss for words. You can send flowers to convey your condolences when your loved ones are involved in an accident, a death, or something else that makes them feel horrible.

5. To show kindness

We've all wished for the world to be more compassionate and heard of spontaneous acts of generosity. Choose a loved one from your phone's contact list;

It might be a coworker, a sister, a brother, or anybody you like, and send them a bouquet. Consider how pleased they will be with the present. Isn't it wonderful?

6. To celebrate

Is your friend's birthday approaching? Is your parents' anniversary approaching? Or perhaps someone in your family is getting married.

Flowers are an ideal present for every occasion and an excellent way to commemorate the simple things in life.

7. To uplift someone

When words fail to express anything, flowers may bring warmth and comfort into someone's life. Consider giving flowers to anyone who needs emotional support, as it will enhance their spirits and bring optimism into their life.

If you send flowers, especially roses, to your significant other, Maya Flowers has a great list of the meanings of roses by number and color that you might want to look at.

8. To impress someone

Do you have feelings for your lab partner? Maybe you fancy the girl in the neighborhood and need an icebreaker to break the ice. 

Send them a flower and a short note expressing her lovely looks, and invite her for coffee. She will not refute it. Believe me.


To conclude, roses represent everything from passionate love to undying devotion, which is why they are often given as tokens of affection. Their aroma is also thought to be seductive, adding another layer of appeal to this iconic flower.

So, ready to give your loved ones the token of appreciation they deserve? We've got you covered with stunning and preserved luxury roses.
