new moon rosesRoses are a beloved flower, and purple one of the most regal colors of the spectrum – yet until now, the two didn’t truly coexist. The rare occurrence of purple in nature has given it a reputation for being mysterious and coveted. Throughout history, purple was worn only by royalty, and the color is known to represent wealth, extravagance, wisdom, dignity and grandeur. It is thought to enhance feelings of peace and spirituality and has even been considered magical in many circles. The majority of purple flowers in nature tend towards lilac or lavender, making this rose a truly exotic choice for your loved one.

This special variety has been bred to have a trademark pointed petal shape, and the roses are also longer lasting. To add drama to this exquisite rose, the shading at the tips is very dark, almost black. There are only a very small number of select farms growing this rose, making its availability very limited – but Breen’s Florist is thrilled to be able to deliver you this special rose. Who in your life deserves an exclusive bouquet?

Roses for June

rosesJune is special for so many reasons.

With school letting out, kids are liberated and looking forward to a long summer. Father’s Day is coming up, and many weddings will take place. In fact, June is one of the most popular months for weddings across the country. The rose also has a very big part to play in June, for three main reasons. The first is connected to all those weddings – roses are often the flower of choice for brides, with the white rose being the most frequent choice. Interestingly, in early history, the white rose was also considered the bloom that represented true love. Although the red rose eventually took over that honor, the white rose bouquet is still an iconic arrangement for wedding ceremonies.

This special day is simply to express admiration for the near perfect red rose, which is emblematic of love, passion and all things romantic. Whether you visit a rose garden or give a single red rose to the one you love, surprise them by knowing that June 12th holds such special meaning.

Of course, red or white might not be appropriate for everyone in your life, but never fear. The rose comes in such a wide spectrum of color that the right bouquet is easy to achieve – yellow roses for friendship, pink roses for admiration, orange roses for the excitement of a new relationship or purple to say “I’m enchanted by you!”

You can also give any number of roses for your birthday gift.

Why Do We Give Roses in June?

As one of the most popular flowers for gifts, roses are lovely at any time of the year, but they’re very special during the month of June since they’re the official flower. One of the reasons they were chosen as the official flower for June was because they were in bloom during the month which meant they were easier to find for gifts and decorating.

However, it wasn’t until quite recently that they were widely available for everyone to enjoy. Just a few hundred years ago, they were rare and cultivated only by the very rich. Roses were considered so valuable at one time that they were actually used as currency!

Whether you show up at the door with a bouquet of flowers, or you send them across the country, roses are a fun and elegant birthday gift. If you know someone with a June birthday, make gift shopping easy by giving them a beautiful bouquet.
