- For protection, roses are shipped in a cardboard wrap. The 20 stems are layered, therefore you will only be able to see the top layer. DON'T FREAK OUT, you have not been short-changed, sweet pea! Once you unwrap, all 20 stems will be waiting on you!
- Stem Count: 20 Stems
- Season: All Year
- Color: Golden, mustard yellow
- Description: Long, stiff single stem with full rose bloom.
- Flower Care: Upon receiving your roses, leave on the cardboard sleeve, give them a fresh cut, and place them in water for at least 1-2 hours BEFORE removing the packaging sleeve. This is to ensure they are hydrated with their heads upright so the heads won't slump over. Make sure the roses have A LOT of room to open. Remove guard petals (typically 3-8 petals), and remove all leaves below the water-line. Place the roses in a sunny spot to encourage opening if they are too tight the 2nd day.
- What's Good About 'Em? What's Bad About 'Em?
- The Good: So many colors, so predictable, and so hardy! We rarely do a wedding without roses, they are truly classic and a wonderful foundational element in any arrangement.
- The Bad: Roses come closed and need to 'bloom', therefore they need a lot of elbow room, so no crowding! If they are not opening we often will set them outside in warm weather for a few hours or use a hairdryer (heat OFF) to push the petals open if they are being fussy. Overall, they are pretty easy to work with all year.
