The Pacific Blue Rose is actually a lavender rose, making it rare among the rose family, according to the Flower Shop Network's website. Like other rose colours such as red, white and yellow, lavender roses have a special meaning for flower enthusiasts. Mixing lavender roses with other colours may help create an arrangement that expresses a rich, romantic meaning. The Pacific Blue Rose is also closely tied to the mystery of the fabled blue rose.

Primary Meanings

According to the Flower Expert website, the Pacific Blue Rose and other lavender varieties convey a meaning of enchantment and love at first sight. This meaning makes them an ideal gift choice for someone starting a new relationship. It's also ideal for a couple that has been together for many years and whose personal love tale includes the phrase, "It was love at first sight." Giving your sweetheart an arrangement of Pacific Blue Roses lets her know that you are still enchanted by the sight of her.

Other Expressions

In addition to expressing love at first sight and enchantment, lavender roses are closely tied to an expression of royalty. According to the ProFlowers website, purple has long been the colour used to express royal blood. Giving a gift of lavender roses can be ideal for that person who brings an air of majesty into the lives of others.

Blue Roses

There may be a reason why some lavender rose types, such as the Pacific Blue and Blue Curiosa, include the word "blue" in their names. Lavender roses are rare, and the light-purple colour is perhaps the closest naturally occurring shade to blue. Blue roses do not occur in nature. As a result, lavender roses have become a stand-in for the mysterious blue rose, which is thought to convey mystery, longing and a wish for the unattainable, according to the ProFlowers website. An arrangement of Pacific Blue roses may be ideal for someone wishing to entice a secret admirer.

Color Combinations

Combining Pacific Blue Roses with other flowers with rich meanings creates a multilayered, meaningful arrangement. For example, peach roses convey a meaning of sincerity and an expression of "let's get together." An arrangement pairing these with Pacific Blue Roses (with their meaning of enchantment and a wish for the unattainable) could express a desire to take a fledgling relationship to the next level. Another interesting combination would be Pacific Blue Roses paired with white roses, which mean purity and innocence, perfect for conveying an expression of pure, innocent love.

Ways to Give

Lavender roses are available at many local and online floral shops, which may allow you to create your own customised arrangement. You could also create a continual gift by planting Pacific Blue Roses in a home's garden, allowing the flowers to be enjoyed year after year.
