Black Roses FAQs
How Long Do Black Roses Last?
Typically, cut roses last about a week, and that includes our black rose bouquets. However, there are a few simple things you can do to try and prolong your black roses for as long as possible:
Cut the stems at a diagonal to ensure all the flowers are able to sufficiently absorb nutrients.
Place the black flower bouquet in cool water with the provided flower food.
Keep your arrangement out of the direct sunlight.
Store your flowers in the fridge overnight.
When you place a black flowers delivery with Proflowers, you can rest assured that they will arrive fresh and well cared for. We even have a 7-day satisfaction guarantee so you can make sure your recipient is happy with the quality of their special bouquet. Need flowers that last much longer? Our preserved roses can last up to a year!
How are Black Roses Made?
There are several ways to make black roses including using dyes, dipping or spraying roses with paint, and even burning them. However, the most common technique among professional florists is using dye to turn the petals black. This is done by placing a white rose bouquet in water that has been treated with black floral dye. To make your own black bouquet, you should:
Remove foliage (leaves, thorns, etc.) from roses
Cut the stems at an angle to allow the dye to absorb properly
Leave the roses in the dyed water for about an hour
You can also purchase a beautiful bouquet of perfectly dyed black roses or other colorful rose arrangements from Proflowers for quick and easy delivery.

What is the Meaning of Black Roses?
Shrouded in mystery and allure, black roses are often considered a more macabre floral arrangement selection reserved for Halloween. However, black bouquets can be used for any occasion including birthdays, gothic-inspired weddings, or simply just to send warm wishes to a friend or loved one who happens to love the color black. Black roses can be a creative and exciting gift for the right person! Whether you’re looking for unique gifts for your wife or want to send a new love interest a bouquet they’ll never forget, black roses are an excellent choice.
