Roses have been symbolic for a long time — 35 million years in fact, according to fossil evidence. The rose plays a role in ancient Greek mythology, where it was linked to love. It is believed that when Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, came across her lover, Adonis, who was wounded by a wild boar, a mixture of her tears and his blood produced a beautiful red rose bush when they hit the ground.

Then there's the Victorian Era, when any sign of public affection was considered vulgar and basically banned. Red roses were commonly used to send love messages. And Shakespeare essentially put the seal on it, with his poetic verses. "Of all the flowers, methinks a rose is best." We agree with ya there, Will: What's not to love about the flower of love?

Roses come in a surprising number of hues, and while not every shade has been given meaning, some of the more popular rose colors symbolize certain emotions and are often explicitly chosen to relay a certain sentiment.

Did you know that orange roses denote energy or that yellow roses embody friendship and joy?

Even shades of the same color can represent different feelings. Dark pink roses say thank you. Pale pink roses are a symbol of gentle admiration. So no matter which two colors the farmers select for your Mother's Day gift, there's sure to be an extra bit of significance in the package.
