Send a Dozen Roses: A dozen roses are a wonderful way to say thank you. A bouquet in full bloom implies the "full flowering" of the emotion being conveyed: a bouquet of red roses in full bloom implies the full flowering of love. The traditional connotation of one dozen roses is love and appreciation. The number 12 is significant within many aspects of nature, religion, and philosophy.

Many of the meaning we attribute to rose colors and numbers can be attributed to the Victorian age, when the practice of flower giving took on a dimension all its own. The use of a dozen red roses came to be a powerful declaration of love, and has also come to represent perfection and completeness. These associations can be largely attributed to the symbolism of the number 12 itself.

The number 12 is often used to represent a complete cycle, such as the 12 months in the year, the 12 hours on the clock, or the 12 signs of the zodiac. Cultures around the world from ancient to modern times have developed calendars based on cycles of 12. The number appears throughout mythological and religious traditions as well and has acquired a sacred and mystical quality which is universal. These aspects all play into the significance of one dozen roses, which can be used to represent perfect beauty or to express complete love and gratitude.
