My favorite rose :) Black Baccara Rose 'The infamous "black" rose symbolizing tragic romance.among other bad things. FYI: There aren't any real black roses. It is a Black Baccara Hybrid Tea and known for being the darkest of the red roses.
The red lotus is the symbol of the heart's original nature. It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion, activity and all the qualities of the heart. It is the lotus of Avalokitesvara. (Red Lotus Flower Reflections on Green Background by Bahman Farzad)
