These 6 Cut Flowers Last the Longest
If you typically choose your bouquet based on aesthetics alone, you may want to reconsider. Spending money on beautiful flowers, only to find them wilted within a few short days, is a seriously disappointing experience. This all-too-common problem stems from the fact that we usually pick blooms based on their color and shape, without considering their lifespan. While no flower lasts forever (these one-year roses are the closest we’ve found), some cut flowers will look fresh for longer than others. In search of the longest-lasting flowers, we asked expert florist Denise Fasanello, owner of Denise Fasanello Flowers, for her top picks. Choose the flowers below the next time you treat yourself to a bouquet, so you can be sure to enjoy its ephemeral beauty for as long as possible.
