I don't really like cut flowers. This sounds horrible but I prefer potted plants. It is like buys something that will be dead. Don't get me wrong I think they are really pretty and I always appreciate them but... in the end they die. I'm a bit to pragmatic for my own good. This is my solution for when I do get them. . .
