Dedicated IP required for SSL Cert if Using Cloud Flare?

I purchased an SSL Certificate through my host. I intend to use Cloudflare. Is it true I need to buy a dedicated IP from my host so that the SSL Cert will work? From what I read, this only applies to older browsers. So, why would it ever be an issue if I am using Cloudflare?

No. Cloudflare will be able to connect to your server with that SSL certificate installed. Then your visitors will hit Cloudflare’s servers with a Cloudflare SSL certificate installed for your domain.

So, host either doesn’t know what it’s talking about or wants me to buy something I don’t need. Thanks!
