Valentine's Day 2011 - Rose Florals

For our signature rose floral offering, we have chosen three extraordinary roses. For our red rose, the silky, deep red of Black Bacarra. This sultry rose is darker and richer in color than a traditional red to better show your deep affections for the one you love.

For non-traditionalists, we have selected Cherry Brandy roses; an exquisite combination of hot pink on the outside and yellow in the inside. Pair this fabulous color combination with exceptionally large blooms and you have a rose that says "I love you" in more ways than one.

Thinking even more outside the box we have the warm beauty of Orange Milva roses; a deep orange rose with hints of hot pink and peach. This hot rose stands out in a crowd.

Black Bacarra
