What is an eternal rose?

Imagine a rose that you will pick while it is still in full bloom and that will remain unchanged for a long period. This is exactly what we call the eternal rose. You may also hear of the term stabilized flowers. All in all, it doesn’t matter what you call it, the only thing that matters is that everyone will like it and that it is suitable as a gift for any occasion. Stabilized flowers are those plants that:

They are coated with special substances that block their wilting and decay. In this case, the plant is quite similar to flies in amber – the coating is hard and does not allow the flower to lose its shape.

They have completely changed their internal composition, due to the introduction in any way of special chemicals. In this case, the plant is also considered quite dead, but all its internal components are impregnated with substances that make the fabric more durable and retain its natural color.

In all cases, stabilized roses are afraid of direct sunlight. In the first case, they cause fading and evaporation of glycerin, and in the second melting of the wax. Wipe the dust very carefully, with a dry cloth or soft dust swab. Flowers stabilized with the solution should be protected from moisture, as this disrupts the concentration of glycerol in the tissues and reduces the lifespan of the flowers. The lifespan of an eternal rose depends on the manufacturer, but also on you and the way you store it, but we can say that it is 1-5 years.

To stabilize the rose longer, you are satisfied, as mentioned above, it is worth keeping it in a dry room, away from the air of light. Also, you must not water it. The reason is the same – water will break down the concentration of glycerol.

Do not move the bouquet a lot, as some manufacturers, for a better view, “construct” roses from several parts of different flowers – unnecessary movements can spoil the flower.

Now you have the necessary knowledge of such an unusual and wonderful gift as a stabilized rose. Whether you saved the flower or bought it from professional florists, this gift will be remembered by people for a long time and will be a pleasant sight for years to come.

The smallest bouquet consists of three roses. Small bouquets express respect. Bouquets of seven roses speak of secret love and those of nine express admiration. You can expect a bouquet of fifteen with for your wedding anniversary, and the one with twenty-one beautiful flowers is intended for a person with whom you have deep feelings. Although many consider the bouquet with 101 roses a cliché, any girl will rarely remain indifferent to this gesture. If there is no unwritten rule, an even number of flowers is intended for burial.

The number of roses in the bouquet does not carry any deep meaning. There are some already established traditions, the respect or disrespect of which depends more on your desire to follow them and no more. And the most important criterion that determines the size of the roses in the bouquet is, of course, the financial capacity of the donor. The more roses, the more luxurious the look of the bouquet.
