Since the pink rose has been around longer than many other existing varieties of rose it has a long and fascinating history. For one, it has been artistically represented since the very beginning of art itself. Amongst wild roses, pink was the most prevalent species found in olden times. They were perhaps the earliest roses to develop. Once the large-scale cultivation of roses began, pink was again the chosen and favored variety- and the shades of pink ranged from a light pink shade to a deep crimson.

With the gradual progression of time many more new species of rose were discovered. This was followed by techniques of crossbreeding that were developed so that led to many new colors being introduced into the existing repertoire of pink roses. Another crucial feature with modern hybrid methods was the entry of roses that could bloom throughout the entire year instead of once a year. A variety of other types of roses and colors entered our consciousness. This only served to make the pink rose attain a greater significance of meaning.

Amongst the old garden roses pink roses were the most prevalent and stood for such sentiments of love, gratitude, appreciation and romance. All roses are associated most strongly with these sentiments, but pink now also denotes elegance, sweetness, romance and poetic ardor. The variations of shade allow one to connote a variety of meanings. Darker hues symbolize thanks and gratitude. Light pinks express sympathy, and are gentle and admiring in tone. There is thus a multiplicity of meaning associated with pink roses.
