Those who are looking to send roses to a loved one may first want to verse themselves with the many different symbolic meanings of each flower. Each color of this traditional bud means something different and it's important to find just the right color to communicate the right emotion, according to ABC News affiliate KVUE.

A dozen red roses may be the most familiar, because this deep hue represents love. But what about for a more subtle message? White roses can provide a lighter beauty, evoking images of youth and innocence.

Yellow is an ideal hue for friendship and caring. The bright, sunny tones of this rose may be best for close friends and family, but not necessarily for a significant other. Pink roses are well-suited for female friends, as they symbolize femininity and elegance.

For a unique touch, one may instead opt for orange, which can mean a number of different things - from enthusiasm to passion to attraction.

Love at first sight is generally evoked through the image of lilies or other purple flowers.

Those who are looking for an alternative to traditional flowers for Valentine's Day may want to look into cyclamens, which offer heart-shaped leaves that are ideal for the upcoming holiday, according to McClatchy Newspapers.
