During the Victorian era, when flower arrangements became the centerpieces of celebrations, birthday flowers, and even for religious ceremonies, gifted yellow flowers were adored by many. Yellow rose displays were even shaped into symbols to conceal secret messages between royal families at balls.
Over time, people were hesitant to give their significant others yellow roses, especially for wedding anniversaries, because of the “myth of the yellow rose.” The myth describes a man giving his wife a yellow rose as a way of asking for divorce and forgiveness for his cheating scandal. Not the most romantic gesture in the book.
