MeaningColor dependentOriginsFlowers in the Rosa genus belong to the Rosaceae family, which includes more than 20,000 cultivars of the world's most popular cut flowers--commonly called roses. These timelessly beautiful blooms originated more than 4,000 years ago, growing in the fertile land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in the Middle East. Today, roses come in many shapes, sizes and colors, including three popular types: sweetheart, spray and tea.Availability and Vase LifeBecause of their widespread cultivation, roses are available in many different colors and sizes year-round. Vase life ranges from 6-12 days, depending on the cultivar and the care-andhandling quality.Care and HandlingRemove any leaves that will fall below the water line. Then provide a fresh underwater cut about one inch from the stems' base. Place them in a fresh flower-food solution, which will provide nourishment and prevent bacterial growth. Cut rose stems under water and add fresh flower food to vases.Design UsesRoses are versatile flowers, often associated with romance and elegance. They make beautiful vase arrangements and singlestem gifts. They're often used in bridal bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres, and other special-occasion arrangements. Their broad appeal is enhanced by the wide variety of rose colors and styles available on today's market.
- Narcissus:MeaningAffection returned, sympathy, desire, love meOriginsNarcissus is the broad botanical term for the flowers most consumers would call daffodils, narcissuses and paperwhites. The term daffodil is generally used to refer to single, trumpet-shaped flowers, while paperwhites refers to the tiny white flowers that grow in clusters. The term narcissus typically refers to the remaining varieties. These cheery spring bulb flowers come in a variety of colors, sizes and shapes, including white, cream, yellow, orange and bicolor. They're members of the Amaryllidaceae family, and are named for Narcissus, a youth in Greek mythology who fell in love with his own reflection and was transformed by the gods into a flower. Narcissuses are native to Europe, North America and western Asia.Availability and Vase LifeNovember through April. 3-6 days.Care and HandlingCut 1/4 inch off stems and place in 70-75 F water with bulb flower preservative. Place daffodils in a separte holing container from other flowers, as they secrete a sap which shortens the vase life of other cut flowers, especially tulips. The sap will stop flowing about 6 hours after the stems are cut. Daffodils can then be safely comibed with other flowers and used in mixed arrangements.Design UsesDaffodils are attractive in bouquets by themselves or mixed spring arrangements. When placing in floral foam, wrap a thin-gauge wire continuously around the stam at the base. This gives soft-stemmed blossoms support for insertion into the foam.
- Peony:MeaningShame; Happy Life; Happy MarriageOriginsPeony is the common name for approximately 33 species of flowers in the Paeonia genus, which belongs to the Ranunculaceae family. The flowers are native to Europe, Asia and North America, and are among the most popular garden flowers.Availability and Vase LifeMarch through June. 5-7 days.Care and HandlingPetals should be kept dry as they are prone to mold. Peonies are wilt sensitive, so avoid prolonged periods out of water.Design UsesThese fragrant, massive flowers work well alone in a bouquet or mixed arrangement. The thin stems may require wiring or other support for the heavy heads. Leave room in a design for blooms to open fully.
