One of the most common complaints about flowers is that they don’t last very long. That can be true if you buy cheap flowers from a supermarket or low-end florist. But if you by good flowers, they can look great for weeks. Take this bouquet. Heuer’s – a 35-year-old florist in downtown Eureka – sent these to Amy’s local book signing on February 4. Eight days later, they still look great, and I’ve enjoyed having them in the house while Amy’s away. I promise you I’ve done nothing to them – I didn’t cut the stems or change the water. I haven’t added flower food or removed wilting petals.

A couple of months ago, Amy posted a picture of some three-week-old roses from OrganicBouquet that had been similarly mistreated. Roses have sure come a long way.

  1. Wow! They look really fresh and lovely. Flowers are such beautiful gifts. I hope my valentine gets some for me too.
    Happy Valentine’s day.
    Drop into my friendship blog at http://friendshipgreetings.blogspot.com for some lovely friendship e-greeting cards and other friendly tips.

  2. What strikes me with many bouquets that can be bought in the USA, is that they are so “oldfashioned”(for lack of a better word) in style.
    Over here in the Netherlands (Europe) we have a very different style of flower arrangement. I’ll try to get some pictures of those bouquets that you can buy from florists and supermarkets in the Netherlands (aka Holland)on my blog in the next week or so.

    But flowers, however they are arranged, bring joy in everybody’s life. Enjoy the roses!

  3. Though finding these long lasting roses as a bare root, ready for nothwest planting seems impossible.

  4. I have to say I was very skeptical at first to send flowers online as I had a bad experience with some of the online florists to send my orders to Hong Kong and sometimes to Taipei. I also tried companies like Flowers.com but they did not have a good selection. I tried proflowers.com but they did not respond to my emails. I also don’t like some of the local florist as I also had a bad experience and felt the florist didn’t do a good job. I finally did a google and yahoo search and found somewhat of an unknown company called Asiaroses.com. The website was just okay but they had the flowers I liked. So I finally decided to take the risk and try them out. When my girlfriend received the flowers she said the flowers were very fresh and nicely designed. So I have to say this really made my day to find out I made my girlfriend’s day as well. SO I finally decided to start using Asiaroses.com for the past year and sent a number of bouquets to my girlfriend and now we are married! So she told me I ought to thank this flower site. Hahah…. SHe is kind of right and I think they deserve a lot of credit for doing a good job. I’d still say they need to improve their website design but the design of their flowers were outstanding and that is what counts and counted for me.
