The use of red roses as a symbol for love and romance has been around for ages.
Numerous early cultures used red roses as decorations during marriage ceremonies.
More specifically, roses come in seven different types: climber, floribunda, grandiflora, hybrid tea, miniature, shrub and landscape as well as tree roses.
The most popular red rose varieties are the hybrid tea, which is long-stemmed and usually produces just one flower per stem; and the floribunda, which is a bushy shrub that's more durable than the hybrid tea.
So in addition to "I love you," red roses can also convey other messages, including congratulations, job well done and respect.
Just like there are several different colors of roses, there are different strains of them as well.
