The flower industry is expected to triple its demand in some parts of the world for roses and other cut flowers this February in light of the upcoming Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day.

According to, flower growers in Malaysia's Cameron Highlands have been preparing for the surge in exports and are experiencing increased sales of roses that are selling for a higher price. Some sellers say roses are four times more expensive in the weeks before Valentine's Day, while carnations have doubled in price in the past couple of years.

The news source reports that this February is expected to rake in more sales than last year, as Valentine's Day and the Chinese New Year fell on the same day in 2010.

Roses are a popular and highly desired commodity on Valentine's Day, making a bouquet featuring a dozen red roses an ideal gift for a loved one or romantic interest. According to, the deep red color signifies intense feelings and passion, namely that of a romantic bend.
