The Meaning of Yellow Roses
The symbolic meaning of yellow roses is that of friendship, or platonic love. They also signify the promise of a new beginning, but this would be the type of new beginning relating to newlyweds or new mothers, rather than the beginnings of a love relationship.
Yellow roses signify joy and delight. Give them to the new mother in the delivery room or the university graduate after their graduation ceremony.
A flower arrangement composed primarily of red roses is the most appropriate bouquet for a Valentine's lover's gift of flowers.
Update January 30th: Welcome LAist readers! I was thrilled to get a link today from the LAist. This is so wonderful especially as today happens to be my birthday. For a new blogger, a link from a Los Angeles PR7 site is a bigger thrill than a gift of several dozen beautiful yellow roses.
