What are preserved flowers?
Preserved flowers are 100% natural flowers. They are also called everlasting flowers or eternal roses. They are made with a unique process of dehydration, decolorization, coloring, and drying to retain their original softness, shape, and luster. Each step is calculated and carried out precisely depending on the region’s temperature and environment. Each flower looks natural and fresh. The process of preservation, as well as the “after preservation embellishment”, are very technical and specialized. Due to the quality requirements, time consumed, and complicated production procedures, it is very normal that preserved flowers costs are higher than fresh or dried flowers. If you take good care of your eternal flowers, you can keep it for more than two to five years, or even longer.
Many flowers can be used to make everlasting flowers, common ones are: roses, hydrangea and carnations.
In addition, there are many styles of immortal flowers with other flower species such as gerbera and turmeric. But the rose is still the main category, because the rose:
- Many colors
- High yield
- Easy to process
- Can be stored for a long time, suitable for the characteristics of immortal flowers
Everlasting Rose has a wide range of products, and the quality is very stable. Therefore, if you want to choose immortal flowers, it is recommended to start with roses!
Everlasting flowers are suitable for all occasions especially for hospital visits and gifts for elders because of their pollen free nature. Most fresh or dried flowers have pollens that can cause allergies. Preserved flowers remove most their pollens through the preservation embellishment process and needs very little care. They don’t even need water or sun to maintain their natural beauty!
What are dried flowers?
As the name suggests, dried flowers are "dried" plants, that is, what the flowers or plants look like when they wither. Essentially dried flowers are dehydrated, ridding them of their natural moisture. There is no “after” treatment work to rehydrate and re-colorize, just dry the flowers. Once fully dried, the flowers appearance becomes duller as a result of the dehydration process. The foliage and petals become brittle, often shrinking and wrinkling, and colours will continue to fade as they age through natural processing. You are often left with a raw and charming look. Generally speaking, dried flowers can be stored for a few months up to one or two years.
Flower materials suitable for dried flowers generally have one thing in common, which is coarse fiber, lignification, and low water content. The most common dry flowers are roses, gypsophila, baby’s breath, eucalyptus leaves, pampas leaves, hydrangea, straw chrysanthemum and so on.
How to take care of dried flowers?
- Place it in a dry and ventilated environment, avoid moisture and direct sunlight.
- If there is dust, you can brush it off gently with a brush, or blow it off with a small hair dryer with cool air at the lowest wind speed possible. Do not pick it up and shake it as it would break off.
- Avoid heavy collisions.
- Regardless of whether it is a flower material or a ready-made bouquet, put it in the bottle and put it upright. Don't let the flower press on the wall too much because the flower will become brittle when touched.
- Avoid contact with water and corrosive solvents such as essential oils and perfumes.
