Pink is a blend of the colors red and white. Red roses symbolize intense feelings: passionate love and strong sexual attraction. The meaning of white roses counterbalances this intensity with purity and virtue.

Pink roses take the middle ground. Pink is sweet, feminine and ladylike. Pink roses send a softer, more polite message than red rose flowers.

Youthfulness, freshness, and fun are all wrapped up inside the meaning of pink rose flowers. Pink roses speak of beauty and sweet love. Pale pink roses symbolize a purer love than hot pink roses which have more red in their petals.

These are a sweet, innocent pink. Romance is not symbolized. The pretty pink rose buds could be given to a very young girl. The open pink rose flower, to a woman whose virtues you admire. She could be your eldest daughter.

You might present your wife with a single pink rose but choose a deeper pink. A hot pink Hybrid Tea rose will assure her of your continuing love and tell her that you still think she's fun to be with.
