With bright yellow petals and dark green leaves, yellow roses are a fresh burst of sunshine. They shine with light, optimism and positivity. Send yellow roses to show someone you’re thinking of them. Unlike red roses, and most other colour roses, yellow roses generally don’t have a romantic association.
That makes them a great choice of flower gift for non-romantic events such as graduations, retirement parties, congratulatory wishes, or get well wishes.
What do yellow roses symbolise?
Yellow roses symbolise friendship. Their cheerful colour and effortless grace remind us of everything a friend stands for: support, joy and light. They cheer us up when we are down - just as yellow roses do. In fact, studies have shown that colours really do have an effect on our mood. Yellow makes us feel happy, energised and upbeat. The cheerful nature of the yellow roses expresses feelings of goodwill, making them a popular choice for leaving flowers.
Where do yellow roses come from?
Yellow roses originated in the Middle East. Europeans discovered them in Afghanistan and Southeast Asia in the 18th century. They were a refreshing change from pink and white roses, which were commonly available. The Europeans were captivated and began cultivating their own yellow roses, cross-breeding them with other varieties to give the yellow rose the signature rose aroma.
