Valentine's Day roses: What does each color symbolize?

(FOX19) - With Valentine's Day just around the corner, selecting the right type of flowers -- and knowing what all those colors mean -- can be helpful when picking out a bouquet for your sweetie.

Dana Propes with Adrian Durban Florist visited the Morning Xtra on Monday to talk flower arrangements.

A red rose means love. But what if you're in the early stages of the relationship?

"If you have a friend, and you want to send them roses, you send them yellow roses. That means friendship," Propes explained.

You could also send a pink rose, which means elegance, or the common white wedding rose to symbolize young love. Orange roses represent desire and passion.
