Black roses: the most seductive flowers
Among flowers, black roses carry a unique and mysterious aura. True, it may be uncommon to see them as decorations or gifts. However, this unique shade can add a touch of luxury to any occasion.
Surprisingly, black roses holds various meanings, and their symbolism has a deep connection to our everyday life.
In this article, you'll learn the legacy of black roses and their hidden meaning. You'll discover why Amaranté's black forever roses are some of the most luxurious flowers out there.
The history of black roses
People have always believed that black roses do not actually exist in nature. In fact, expert florists have developed different techniques to obtain the perfect black shade to die their blooms.
However, an exciting myth surrounds their origin. A few years ago, wild black roses grew spontaneously in the small Turkish town of Halfeti. Apparently, the climate and the specific water PH of this area allow this to occur without any human intervention.
Unfortunately, it is very uncommon, if not impossible, to come across natural black roses in flower shops. If you do not have time to shop around and are on the market for some black roses, Amaranté has what you are looking for.
These flowers make for an unusual yet elegant gift. A black forever rose arrangement can be a unique addition to your home and will stand out in any living or workspace.
The symbolism behind the black rose
The uncertainty behind the origins of this black flower has attracted our attention for centuries. In ancient Greece and Rome, a black rose symbolized power and strength.
These fascinating blooms also appeared frequently as decorative items on important ceremonies to honor the most significant personalities of the Roman Empire.
Their popularity boomed again in the Victorian Era. With the development of the secret language of flowers, otherwise known as floriography, these black flowers became a common subject in gothic and macabre literature and art.
The black rose has traditionally been a symbol of black magic and resistance. Today, we can still see them make their appearance in many fictional works, such as video games, movies, TV shows, and more.
Throughout time, the black rose has come to express diametrically opposite meanings. This characteristic makes them unique and mysterious: black flowers, in particular roses, can communicate a wide range of emotions.
Death and mourning
In Tarot card readings, the black rose stands for everything opposite a white rose, representing innocence and purity. For example, the black rose appears on the Death card. For this reason, these black flowers often remind of loss and mourning.
Traditionally, the color black is the symbol of sadness and farewell. In Western culture, it's common for people to dress in black for funerals. Generally speaking, old traditions and our cultural legacy have led us to associate black with negative feelings.
However, black flowers and the black rose have recently come to gain a more positive meaning. In fact, these flowers also symbolize the ability to move forward and avoid the negativity stemming from our past.
