After their kale bouquet mix-up went viral, a local couple is speaking out.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- After a tweet depicting their hilarious bouquet fail spread like wildfire across the internet, a local couple is telling their story to ABC13.

Jamarcus Guillory thought he was being a sweet boyfriend when he bought the bouquet for his girlfriend Jailyn Hernandez, but the "flowers" in question turned out to be purple kale.

A photo of the kale bouquet has been retweeted tens of thousands of times on Twitter, and the internet has praised the gesture as sweet and well-intentioned.

"I was really thinking about her when I picked it up," Guillory said. "I thought, 'Man, she would like this!'"

Hernandez blamed the hilarious mix-up on Guillory's dislike for vegetables.

"I knew it was a vegetable because I'd seen it before and I cook. I was like, 'Uh...this is not a flower!'" Hernandez added. "I couldn't stop laughing!"
