A vase life of several years!? Without water?! That is only possible with the preserved roses from Surprose!
These are naturally fresh roses that have been treated so that they remain beautiful for a longer period, without needing water or flower food. The roses are 100% natural and biodegradable. This means that just like any other fresh rose in our range, the rose will perish after a while. The difference is that this rose can stay beautiful for months or even years, unlike our fresh roses that will stay beautiful in the vase for 2-3 weeks if properly cared for.
Long life roses with a long stem!
You probably know them, the short, preserved roses in so-called flower boxes. They are all very short and therefore always need to be shown in a "box". The long life roses from Surprose have a stem of about 55 cm. This allows you to create the most beautiful bouquets that you can enjoy for years. You can order your own number of roses or opt for ready-made bouquets in multiple colours.
Our preserved roses are biodegradable and prepared in an environmentally friendly way. They are all real, naturally grown roses from top growers in South America. After cutting at the grower's, the rosebuds and stems are separated, prepared separately and put back together again. The rosebuds retain their colour and remain in the stage in which they have been preserved. The stems and the leaf on the stem are coloured again to prevent them from turning brown. Our long life roses have the advantage that they can be kept in the vase for years.
You can choose from a number of natural colours and these colours are also the real colours of the species.
How are roses preserved?
A long lasting rose is only cut in the greenhouse when it is at its most beautiful. Our fresh roses are cut when the bud of the rose is still somewhat closed, so that the rose can be delivered as long and fresh as possible. This is different for a long life rose. These are only cut when they are open.
Normally roses drink natural water containing flower food. With a preserved rose, the water is replaced by another liquid, so the rose retains its beauty for a long time. It is as if the liquid makes the rose stand still in terms of beauty over time, allowing you to enjoy it much longer!
Plant-based long lasting roses
Yes, these roses are completely plant-based, even after being treated with the liquid. No dangerous chemicals are used to make the roses long-lasting. All substances used for this process are vegetable and fully biodegradable. Absolutely no plastic or synthetic material is used. These roses are therefore not dangerous for children or pets when they touch them.
Caring for your long life roses
This is how you care for your long-life roses:
- No water! Avoid moisture and put them in a dry vase. Because the stems are coloured they will shed if they come into contact with water.
- Remove leaves from the stem that get under the edge/in the vase.
- Do not place them on a flat surface, the roses can then become flat on the side they have been lying on, so put them upright in a dry vase as soon as possible.
- Bright sunlight, close behind glass can cause discoloration of the roses, so avoid too bright and direct sunlight.
- Dust them carefully every now and then with a soft feather duster. Blowing with air is also a good option to remove dust.
