Hi! I'm Lori for, and today we're at Archibald Flowers and we're going to talk about how to purchase flowers. Generally, roses are the most popular flower, because they are something that everybody knows what a rose is. What we like about roses is that the whole industry has changed because most of the roses that they grow now days come from Ecuador and other countries. You can get a rose that has a very high petal count. What that means is that even though this rose is very, very open, it's going to continue to open, and because it has so many multiple petals, it will continue to open and it won't be dead. There is that kind of proceed notion that when a rose opens then that's it. This rose will continue to open and stay alive for probably anywhere from 3-7 days with proper care.
