Rosa centifolia or Rosa spp.
Available in Pink & Red
Roses are arguably one the most important flowers in all of occult practice, particularly in Western, Ceremonial Magick and old school witchcraft. They bring love into one’s life and symbolize various ideas, depending upon their color. Red Roses represent passion, pink for love and sweetness, white for purity and sometimes for death or nobility. Yellow symbolizes friendship and a dead Rose of any color means bad luck, ill omens or failure of some sort.
The Qabalistic system associates this flower with the Sephirah Tiphareth and the awakening of the Higher Self. The Golden Dawn uses as a primary symbol, the Rose Cross.

Deities: a great many Deities are fond of Roses, including Venus, Hathoor, Eros, Isis, Demeter, Harpocrates, Adonis and La Santisima Muerte. Still, I can’t think of many Gods or Spirits that don’t appreciate them.
Uses For Roses
Love spells are probably the most frequent application of Roses, especially the red and pink variety. Yet, they fall into such a wide number of workings, that it’s difficult to describe what they are good for; it’s almost easier to list what they aren’t useful for.
