La rosa refers to a rose, as you might expect. As the Spanish proverb goes,
No hay rosa sin espinas.
There’s no rose without a thorn.
Meaning that even the things which seem most perfect and beautiful always have some drawback.
El rosa is also the color pink (remember, the words for colors are always masculine). Rosa comes after the noun, and doesn’t change in the masculine or plural.
un pantalón rosa
You can also use the longer forms color rosa or color de rosa:
blusas color de rosa
