Grammar question for 'de' 的

Posted by mnixon September 7, 2008 in the Group General Discussion .

In reviewing the lesson on "Buying a Bouquet of Flowers", I find myself confused over when we use the particle 的 'de'. In the dialogue, I hear "white roses" 白玫瑰  'bai2mei2gui1' when I thought it would be correct to say, 白的玫瑰  'bai2de mei2gui1' following the example on saying, "red ones" 红色的 from earlier in the lesson. Any thoughts? Thanks.
