One of the most beautiful and best-appreciated gifts are fresh cut flowers. Sadly though, they are not everlasting. While this may be a fact, one should remember that not all flowers are cut from the same cloth. Some flowers may bloom at their best for just a few days, some only last a few hours like the night-flowering cereus.
A few others have an incredible lifespan of weeks! When you are considering which flowers to offer as a gift, it’s important to consider your recipient’s preferences and what you’re trying to communicate to them as flower varieties say very different things.
