What are preserved roses?
Preserved roses are natural roses that are carefully preserved using a special proprietary and delicate process to preserve the quality and integrity of each petal, which is then dyed with rich vibrant colors keeping its natural beauty. The preservation of each rose allows them to last for years.
How long do preserved roses last?
Our preserved rose arrangements do not require water to keep its natural beauty, and can last up to one year or more under proper conditions. The roses will keep their look and feel natural for many months without any maintenance.
How are the roses able to last a whole year?
Our preserved roses are treated with a proprietary solution and color pigmentation process that can transform our roses into long-lasting roses that maintain their freshness and shape. The outcome is for our roses to look, feel, and even smell like roses - because they are 100% natural.

What happens if the recipient isn't there to accept the arrangement?
Because each arrangement is personally hand delivered, it's possible that the recipient may not be present during the attempted delivery. If you have any specific instructions for the delivery, be sure to contact one of our floral specialists. Otherwise, the delivering florist may choose to:
- Call the recipient to reschedule an appropriate delivery day and time for the arrangement.
- Leave a note on the recipient's door asking them to contact us to schedule a convenient delivery time.
- Leave the arrangement in a covered and secured area near the front door.
- Leave the flower arrangement with a neighbor and place a message on the recipient's door referring them to the neighbor who is holding their gift.
- Return the arrangement back to a cool air-conditioned area at our flower boutique until we can contact the recipient and schedule a re-delivery.
