Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Preserved Roses! 😲
Do you love buying fresh flowers for your loved ones but hate that they only last around 10 days? You’re not alone! This is why so many have switched over to the beautiful and long-lasting gift of preserved roses. Give the same natural gift in a low-maintenance way. The best part? They won’t wither for up to three years and allow you to truly capture the magical memories you share together.
Here are 10 things you never knew about preserved roses that will officially convert you to this floral masterpiece.
- They are 100% real flowers
Sometimes when people hear “preserved roses” they automatically think “artificial” or “fake.” Yet, preserved roses are 100% REAL. These roses are carefully preserved when they are at their peak beauty, which truly makes them memories that last. You can gift someone preserved roses for their birthday, anniversary, or any other holiday and see them survive for months or years after.
To preserve them, flowers are put into a mixture of glycerin and other plant elements. This rehydrates the roses from their petals to their stems and replaces the sap within them. Once the process is complete after a few days, the rose petals are flexible and appear natural.
- They’re long-lasting
Preserved roses can last up to three years. They allow you to lock in a moment you want to hold dear. At one point, flowers were seen as fleeting, and now they can truly represent something more permanent. Do you have flowers you want to see in your home for the foreseeable future? Perhaps a wedding bouquet, bouquet from the day your baby was born, or another special event? Preserved roses are the perfect way to achieve this!
- They’re low maintenance
Preserved roses require a different type of care than real or artificial flowers, and this makes them much lower maintenance. However, as long as you follow the proper care directions, they are long-lasting and provide memories that last. Here is what you should remember:
- You should keep them out of water
- You should avoid humid environments
- You should not put them in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time
- You should not press, bend, or squash the petals or stems
So, leave them in their clear case with no water and out of direct sunlight, and you have beautiful flowers for three years. Too good to be true, right?
- They make great gifts
Do you know someone who loves flowers? You now have a way to make them last not one week, not two weeks, not three weeks, but three years! From birthdays to anniversaries to Mother’s Day to Valentine’s Day and countless other occasions, you can show someone your eternal love for them by giving them (practically) eternal roses. They’ll be so impressed by this long-lasting and low-maintenance gift with a pristine presentation.

- They never wither
Fresh flowers will often wilt over time because cutting their stems is a shock to their system. While it may recover temporarily with the application of water, it never truly absorbs all the water or nutrients it needs (as it did when it was planted with roots).
The process that helps a preserved rose last and maintain its beautiful radiance and feel also prevents withering. You’ll never have to worry about your luxury preserved roses looking sad and wilted for up to three years!
- They’re environmentally friendly
Preserved roses are more environmentally friendly than fresh cut flowers. They have both a long life and low energy consumption for their transport and storage. Overall, this equals a lower carbon footprint than fresh or artificial flowers. If you’re trying to be kind to the globe, you can’t do better than this! Help care for the environment next time you want to give flowers as a gift with preserved roses.
- They grow in rose farms of South America

- They’re different from dried roses
One way that people love to preserve their flowers from special days is by drying them. Yet, “preserved roses” and dried roses are much different. Dried flowers are hung upside down for several days to dehydrate the bloom and stem. It’s not for several more days/weeks that the rose will be completely dry. At the end of the process, the bouquet will be brittle, lack the same vibrant color, and be easily breakable.
In the past, this was the only way to preserve fresh flower, but today know that we can take colorful flowers at their peak and keep them that way. When you purchase luxury preserved roses, there’s absolutely no comparing them to dried roses, which can be ruined in an instant if they’re dropped or moved.
- They’re NOT artificial
Preserved roses undergo a transformation process to help sustain and stabilize the natural plant. However, it doesn’t utilize any of the same materials that you would in an artificial flower. Artificial flowers often use plastic or synthetic fabrics. This is a far different process than preserved roses.
- They are biologically degradable and harmless to children and pets
Anytime you bring a new plant or substance into your home, you want to make sure it’s safe for you and your family. Preserved roses are environmentally friendly, biologically degradable, and completely harmless to both children and pets. Only non-toxic and cosmetic grade chemicals are used in the preservation of our roses. As a family business, we’re confident in our process to keep your family safe.
