Buying flowers for a Chinese Lady

As for sending a bouquet of flowers to a Chinese lady…Usually Chinese guys only send red roses to someone special. Otherwise, the girl would be misled and think you are in love with her.

If you are not in love with her, you’d better send lilies, lilac, peony, orchid, narcissus, etc.

Does it matter how many flowers are in the bouquet?

If you do send red roses, a certain number does have a special meaning. For instance, 11 means I will love you for my whole life. 21 means your are the one I love most. 99 means I will love you forever. 365 means I love you every day.

When the boy asks a girl to marry him, he would send 101 roses. If the girl is willing to marry him, she would send 1 rose back to the boy. There is also a special meaning for each variety of flower. We Chinese call it “Hua yu” which means the meaning of the flower.
