A few weeks ago I did a blog on the colors of roses and their meanings. Today, I'll give you the number of roses and their meanings. And, if you know anyone who can afford the 999 roses, send him my way! (Actually, I'm allergic to roses even though I dearly love them!).
Roses are native to the United States and are our national floral emblem. June is National Rose Month (when I wrote about the colors of roses). The rose is the state flower selected by Georgia, Iowa, New York, North Dakota, and the District of Columbia.
Now, the numbers of roses and their meanings:
Single Roses: "Love at First Sight".
Two Roses: "Mutual love". Stems wired together signifies "Upcoming Engagement or Marriage".
Three Roses: "One Month Anniversary".
Six Roses:"I Need Your Love" or "Infatuation".
Seven Roses: "We're Together".
Nine Roses: "Together Forever".
Ten Roses: "Perfect Love".
Eleven Roses: "Treasured Love".
Twelve Roses: "Be Mine".
Thirteen Roses: "Secret Admirer", "Friends Forever".
Twenty Roses: "Sincere Love".
Twenty-one Roses: "Dedicated Love".
Twenty-four Roses: "I'm Yours All Day Long".
Twenty-five Roses: "Congratulations".
Thirty-three Roses: "Affectionate Love".
Thirty-Six Roses: "Remember OurFull-Blown, "Head-Over-Heels" Romance".
Forty Roses: "Genuine Love".
One Hundred Roses: "Undying love".
One Hundred and One Roses: "You Are My One and Only Love".
One Hundred and Eight Roses: "Marriage proposal".
Three Hundred and Sixty-Five Roses: "I Love You Every Day of the Year"!
May your loved one surprise you with beautiful roses!
