Flower meanings are fun and exciting because they make gifts more meaningful and mysterious. But did you know that for roses, the meaning isn't only based on the petal color but the number of stems in a floral arrangement, too?
If you give or receive rose bouquets from your significant other, here's an intriguing way to decipher secret messages that they could be intentionally or unconsciously sending.

Check out the unspoken flower meanings behind each number of roses.

- Two roses say the feeling is mutual. Give it as a response to someone you want to be with.
- Three roses: Three roses stand for
- Six roses or half a dozen can say, "I want to be yours."
