Dried Flowers Frequently Asked Questions
Don't let your lack of familiarity with dried floral arrangements stop you from enjoying these stunning and unique flowers. No matter the occasion, all flower arrangements can also be prepared using dried flowers. Let us help clarify your questions about dried flowers and bouquets below.
What does it mean when someone gives you dried flowers?
You can have dried flowers delivered for all of the same situations and special occasions for which you'd give fresh flower bouquets. Dried flowers can be an especially powerful way to preserve a bouquet or flower with special meaning. Want to give a friend or loved one a memento of a sentimental occasion or a celebrated accomplishment? We can help you arrange a bouquet of dried flowers they'll cherish for months or years to come. Featuring a recently passed loved one's favorite flower in a dried arrangement of sympathy flowers can also be a moving way to preserve their memory during the grieving process and beyond.
Do you put dried flowers in water?
You should not put dried flowers in water, as they need to stay dry to maintain their unique appearance. Putting dried flowers in water will not rehydrate them or cause them to re-bloom. This is one of the main benefits of dried flowers—they maintain their appearance consistently for much longer periods of time than fresh flowers, which require maintaining fresh water in a vase. A dried floral arrangement should last at least a year, and sometimes longer, as long as it is kept dry and isn't in constant direct sunlight.
What is the difference between dried and preserved flowers?
Drying flowers is one way to preserve flowers to make them last longer than they would if left fresh in a vase. Dried florals are essentially flowers that are dehydrated in a controlled manner, leaving a fully intact flower with a slightly different appearance than its fresh-cut version. Dried flowers often have a unique and interesting texture that can help accent certain bouquets and attract the eye. Often dried floral arrangements have a slightly deeper or subtler color, making them perfect for winter and more rustic aesthetics. Having dried flowers delivered is also easy, since they aren't as affected as fresh flowers by the length of time spent in shipping.
