1) Find a Vase - You may have noticed your flowers no longer have roots, and that they’re not in soil. Bet they’re thirsty! Time to put them in your favorite vase with some fresh water.
2) Trim Those Stems - Keep those stems trimmed! Always cut your flowers at an angle so they can absorb more water & won’t suffocate on the bottom of the vase. After the initial cut, check the bottoms of your stems every couple of days, and if the ends are looking a bit slimy, just snip off an inch or so.
3) Remove Leaves - Take off any excess leaves so that all the water is funneled into the petals. Pay special attention to leaves below the water line because they’ll decompose, causing rot and bacteria to grow, which will shorten the lifespan of your blooms.
4) Mist Them - Flowers like to be misted (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?). Lightly spray down the petals from time to time to keep your stems looking fresh, and remove any buds that are clearly past their prime.
5) Keep Them Cool - Last but not least, keep your flowers in a cool area. Don’t put them near radiators, computers, televisions, fireplaces, ovens… you get the idea.
Pink Expression Roses: This Garden Rose is sure to please. The romantic color and many ruffled petals draw attention compared to other roses.
Mini Calla Lilies: These little trumpets of purple bring movement to any bouquet they are added to. Be sure that any pets don’t get ahold of them as they are toxic.
Snapdragons: Picked for the Regatta for its unique purple hue, the Snapdragon earned its name for its resemblance to a dragon’s face. If you squeeze the size of one of the larger blooms of this straight stem, it resembles a dragon’s mouth opening and closing. Like delphinium, blooms start from the base and go upwards.
Lisianthus: Also known as a Texas Blue Bell, these pink blooms add a sophisticated touch of wildflowers to a bouquet.
Delphinium: It is said that the Delphinium earned its name for its dolphin-shaped flowers. Its intense blue color is tempting to people and animals alike, but be sure that neither consume it as it is a toxic flower.
Sweet William: Dianthus barbatus, or Sweet William, fills bouquets with its purple-pink bundles of flowers. Its spiky petal shape adds texture as well!
Veronica: A favorite flower among our designers, its ability to add whimsical height and texture to an arrangement is hard to beat!
