BANGKOK, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- A Thai flower delivery company said ahead of Valentine's Day the prices of roses in the country are the highest in the world.

Rawat Chindapol, chief executive officer of Miss Lily Flower, said Wednesday the price of a dozen roses in Thailand is about $134, compared to a world average of about $100, the Bangkok Post reported Wednesday.

"If the roses are imported from the Netherlands, or if they are 'black roses' from foreign countries, a bouquet can cost around 9,000 ($301) to 10,000 baht ($335)," Rawat said.

The Economic and Business Forecasting Center at the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce said about $107.6 million is expected to be circulated in the Thailand on Valentine's Day, which would be the highest for the holiday in five years.
