Harvesting/Vase Life: Freshly harvested flowers can last for up to 2 weeks in the vase. Flowers can also be dried for later use. Hang freshly cut stems upside-down in a warm, dark place for 2-3 weeks or until they are firm to the touch. Be gentle when handling after they’ve been dried, because the blooms can be fragile and can fall apart more easily.
