15 Flowers that Will Live the Longest in Your Home

Published

From bold carnations to delicate lavender, nothing brightens up a home like a fresh bunch of flowers. Whether you’re buying a bouquet for a loved one or simply want to spruce up your home, freshly cut flowers can bring so much joy.

While we know that cut flowers will not last forever, many bouquets begin to wilt after just a few days. However, to keep your vase of flowers fresh for as long as possible, opt for longer-lasting flowers that will stay fresh for weeks rather than days.

Plus, according to the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), there are steps you can take to ensure that your bouquet stays as fresh as possible for as long as possible.

Firstly, make sure that your vase is clean. Then, dissolve the flower food in the water before placing the flowers in the vase.

Check and top up the water every couple of days and change the water every two to four days. When changing the water, cut a small amount of the stem each time. Be sure to remove any dying flowers from the vase and keep the vase in a cool spot.

Below, using information from RHS, Bloom IQ, Bloom and Wild, Better Homes and Gardens, and Gardeners’ World, The Liberty Buzz has rounded up the flowers that will live the longest displayed in your home.
