The Meaning of the Number of Roses
As the kind of flowers has a meaning, the number of roses sent also communicates a special message.
There is evidence that proves that the flowers have been given away as a gift starting from the middle ages. However, from the second half of the 18th century, the Western world discovered that in Ottoman Empire the number and the kind of flowers had unique meanings. During the Victorian Ages, feelings and emotions were not expressed due cultural etiquette, so the flower code gained popularity fastly. They adapted the flower language to the Western culture.
