Before you bring or send roses and spend more than you have to, read this: Meaning of the number of roses sent:
One rose = Love at first sight, or years later “you are still the one”.
9 Roses = A big jump up from six, nine roses symbolize eternal love or “I want to be with you forever.”
10 Roses = A perfect 10 means “You are perfection.”
12 roses = A dozen is like picking the best heart from a Sweetheart candy box; it means “be mine.”
13 roses = Thirteen may be a baker’s dozen, but not so in love.
2 dozen = You may be feeling guilty or overdoing it?
One long stem rose may just do the trick to show how much you love someone.
