Tips for Your Cut Flowers
Some of the best and most widely adapted annual cut flowers with the longest vase life include: alstroemeria, aster, celosia, cosmos, gypsophila, lavatera, rudbeckia, scabiosa, snapdragon, statice, sunflower, yarrow, and zinnia.
Keep in mind that flowers with hollow stems do not have a long vase life.
