Friday's Fascinating Flower Facts
There are more than 100 variety of roses. A 'black rose' is not actually black it is usually a dark red. Each colour has a different meaning or symbolises something different to us for example red means love, orange - desire, yellow - joy, while black (deep red) is a symbol of black magic as well as mutiny and resistance for anarchist and antiauthoritarian groups.
