All roses offer protection and love.
Roses in yellow hues are the ones to invite into your life if you are wanting to improve friendships; welcome back energies, people and situations into your life; are looking at a new beginning and are very good to give to someone if you are wanting to ask for a second chance or would like to show that you are facing in love with them!
As A Flower Oracle, Yellow Roses will indicate that new friendships are about to be formed and that something positive from your past is about to return. They will warn of melancholy too and be careful to not over romanticise a situation.
It would take pages to share Rose botanical history with you as they have been on earth for so long. Fossil evidence dating them at least 60 million years ago. In 500BC Chinese philosopher Confucius spoke of them in the Imperial Gardens. The Ancient Romans revered them and flavoured drinks and foods; perfumed themselves with their divine scent and used them in ceremonies, rituals and traditions.
Roses need lots of sunlight, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter and a sheltered position to ensure the best possible conditions for blossoms. Mulch and feed well. Follow guidelines given for your rose type for regular pruning advice and when transplanting but all roses need to be pruned back fairly hard (branches to no more than about 10 to 5cm). This will stimulate the roots.
