Meaning of a Dozen Red Roses

Meaning of a dozen roses:
There are many meanings - floriography, especially when throwing color into the mix. I'll give you my top 10:
10 - Complete declaration of love
9 - Happy Valentine's Day
8 - Thinking of you every month of the year
7 - Perfect Love
6 - Sacred Love
5 - Mystical Love
4 - Be Mine
3 - True love
2 - Uncreative and unoriginal
1 - Anything less than a dozen red roses says you're cheap!

Thank you for this post! I am a Dutch florist and living and working in England for almost a year now. In Holland it is very normal to give 10 roses, or any odd number, you hardly get a customer asking for a dozen red roses. This was a big difference for me when I started working in England and I never really understood it. But after reading your post it all makes sense! Thank you for that!
