Roses

 

“The long cultural history of the rose has led to it being used often as a symbol. In ancient Greece, the rose was closely associated with the goddess Aphrodite. In the Iliad, Aphrodite protects the body of Hector using the “immortal oil of the rose” and the archaic Greek lyric poet Ibycus praises a beautiful youth saying that Aphrodite nursed him “among rose blossoms”. The second-century AD Greek travel writer Pausanias associates the rose with the story of Adonis and states that the rose is red because Aphrodite wounded herself on one of its thorns and stained the flower red with her blood. — wiki

“The language of love goes beyond roses, which made up 51% of Valentine flower sales in 2017 [in the US]. You can communicate your specific feelings and desires to your love with the traditional meaning of flowers: send gardenias to your secret love, or purple larkspur to your first love.” — thespruce.com

Roses are also the birth flower of June. — wiki
