Lavender roses signify magic, love and mysticism. When sent to someone, they mean magical love, but if the thorns are removed, it implies the love was felt at first sight. They are also a good way to impress a boss by indicating absolute authority.
Shades of purple are considered to indicate wealth, power and royalty. Placed as a centerpiece on a conference table, lavender roses give a regal or majestic look and feel to the room. Purple roses come in shades of lilac, lavender or plum, and roses that are referred to as blue also fall into the purple category.
