Question about Roses?

Postby sped2 » February 6th, 2014, 7:49 pm

I'm writing a story and it's all got to do with roses. Is it possible that:
A white rose could mean purity
A red rose could mean blood
A black rose could mean death

What do you think? Could I use those meanings?

Thank you in advance

(Sorry the question was confusing. I didn't know how to phrase it.)

A white rose traditionally symbolises innocence,implying purity.
Red symbolises passion or true love
Ther is no true black rose,but symbolically it means the end.Which would include death.

Your question is not confusing at all and yes, you can positively use those meanings! And believe it or not, there are dark roses that resemble black in color.

That makes sense to me Cleopatra, they could also symbolise the human life-cycle, birth life and death.

the red rose and black rose are very same
because blood is sometimes known as death so you might change blood
but its up to you :)

They seem to have a few definitions of the colours.
