This bouquet lasted appox 10 after cutting and that was without any use of floral preservatives! All that is needed is to change the water every couple days and give the stems a fresh cut. Also, I placed the arrangement in the coldroom at night on the concrete floor. The cooler temps allow the blooms to refresh themselves overnight and be their best the next day!

Here is a list of the flowers used so you can make this display yourself at home:

Rudbeckia 'Prarie Sun' (approx 3-4 stems with side buds)
Perennial Rudbeckia (approx 3-4 stems with side buds)
'Annabelle' Hydrangea (1 large bloom)
Blanket Flower (5-6 stems)
Queen Annes Lace (as a filler. use as much as you need)

This arrangement really brought the summer sun indoors for us and I hope it does the same for you!
