Rose Color Symbolism

Long Stemmed Roses

The elegant appearance of the long stemmed rose has made it one of the most popular flowers as gifts and in arrangements. As the classic symbol for love, long stemmed red roses have become the preferred choice for romantic occasions. Long stemmed roses are also available in a variety of other colors, which makes them a fitting gift for a multitude of occasions. Their long, rigid stems make them ideal for arrangement and presentation in a vase.

Long stemmed roses are typically variants of a classification of rose known as the Hybrid Tea. These roses originated in the 1800s when, for the first time, roses newly introduced from China were cross-bred with European roses. The results were revolutionary. These long stemmed roses with large single blooms combined the pleasing scent of the tea rose with the ability to bloom repeatedly throughout the year. They also introduced a whole new range of colors to the palette. They quickly grew in popularity and are now the roses most often used as gifts and in arrangements.


Long stemmed roses are special because of the meanings we associate with them. The traditional message of a bouquet of long stemmed roses is, “I will remember you always.” They can also be used to communicate to someone, “I still love you.” And of course, a bouquet of long stemmed red roses is the ultimate expression of true love. They can represent a love that runs deep and is long-lasting. A long stem rose bouquet can express that extra bit of love and gratitude to someone who is extra special.
