Meanings of orchid colors

"I found that I could say things with COLOR and SHAPES that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for."   ~ Georgia O'Keeffe

I love all orchids regardless of their color.  Some of the most exquisite, vibrant colors in nature are found in orchid flowers and I truly think that they are very special plants and each one is a unique, beautiful gift.  My personal favorite, though, is the one devoid of vibrant colors - the white orchid.   It is classic, elegant and always integrates perfectly into a space regardless of the décor.  What is your favorite color of orchid?  Did you know that different orchid colors denote different meanings?  Although my usual advice is to simply choose the color that makes you happy, but you may want to know that each color conveys a message or meaning.  Just in case you want to include a hidden message in the gift you are sending! 

Pink signifies romance, love and friendship
Red is the color of joy, passion and love
Dark red is associated with leadership and courage
Purple signifies wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery and magic
Orange shows enthusiasm, happiness, creativity and success
Yellow is associated with joy, happiness, intellect and energy
White is positive, safe and pure
