can anyone please tell me what this plant is ? It came in a flower bouquet I bought about 2 month ago, and this has no sign of wilting. It has been in a vase with just water. I would like to buy them in a bunch if it last forever like this !!!

I'm pretty sure it"s Butcher's Broom --Ruscus aculeatus.

I agree. They will not last "forever". And, it is not an easy plant to root. If you can source a Ruscus to grow in your garden, you may cut foliage to bring in the house. I would not think it would be happy in the Las Vegas climate.
