as a female i have to wonder: why are the roses so important? did you say you were bringing roses then showed up with something less desirable/more of a present for yourself?
but a way to get around it is to explain that none of the flowers in the shop looked nearly as beautiful as she does and you didn't want to make the flowers feel bad by comparison to her. (expect her to call you on it, but try to do it with a straight face) then give her a living bush from the hardware store/lumberyard/greenhouse and tell her that this is a better gift because it will grow just as your love for her grows.

You could also tell her that you felt it was more important to be able to spend more time with her, as the flower debate can last a long time (which color, which blooms, which vase, etc.).

neither. The whole situation is ridiculously childish.
