Roses have always had a strange hold over man. Maybe it is the influence of the Victorian tradition of using flowers to express emotions that have led to this strange fascination. And the rose has always been the most popular of all flowers when it comes to expressing emotions. One reason for this is that roses alone have various shades that can be interpreted in as many ways as possible.
The green rose, though not abundant in nature, is a beautiful sight to behold. The color green has many meanings and can be deciphered to symbolize diagonally opposite things. The most significant and popular meaning of the green rose is fertility. The green color symbolizes richness, abundance and bounty. Green roses are a sign of plenty and copiousness.
Green is life, abundant growth, constant renewal of life and energy. The green rose signifies the constant rejuvenation of spirit, and is therefore a messenger of cheerfulness. Transformation and change are a necessary prerequisite for life to go on. And green roses express this spirit of rejuvenation very beautifully.
Green rose also symbolizes self-respect and well being. Being symbolic of all life force, the color green gives a rich meaning to a rose. The freshness of the springtime, the abundance of the rainy season, all is well expressed by the green rose.
Green is also a very pleasing color. Psychologists believe that the color green often imparts a sense of balance, stability and peace to the human mind. When you simply need to surprise someone, or please him or her, use a green rose. It has no overtones of love, but is replete with positive nuances.
A negative aspect of the green rose is that green is also the color of envy. The "green-eyed monster" has forever given the pale green a negative meaning.
However, generally the color green symbolizes the richness of nature and the completeness of life. A green rose conveys a message of plentitude and affluence, and augurs great success for any new venture.
