What to look for:
- Buy when flowers are just opening and buds are light pink.
- Avoid bunches with yellow leaves.
- Keep cool at all times.
- Strip leaves from the bottom half of each stem and clean thoroughly.
- Recut at least ¼” off the stems and place in water immediately.
- Do not bash or split stems.
- Always use a preservative as this will help buds to open.
- Replace vase water with fresh preservative every 2 to 3 days.
- Very sensitive to ethylene.
