Things to know when sending flowers in Italy

So you’ve decided to give some flowers to one of your Italian friends, or even your girlfriend!

When is it customary to give flowers in Italy?

  • birthdays of dear female friends, daughters, nieces, grandchildren
  • anniversaries of loved ones

Red roses, rose rosse, are the most popular flowers for lovers.

Make sure that the flowers you give are always an odd number. Some people are superstitious enough to believe that an even number of flowers is a bad omen.

Never give chrysanthemums as gifts because they are used to decorate graves in honor of deceased loved ones.
