Roses are very plentiful, and in various stages.
Roses are available in many venues. They are also in different stages in the life of a bloom. Becoming aware of the different stages of a rose bloom can add longevity to an arrangement.
Roses can be cut in the early bloom stage. This occurs when the bud is tight and the center is very firm. When this happens, occasionally the bud will not open. In a later stage, the outer petals of the bloom begin to open with the center of the bloom still firm. As the rose begins to mature, the petals will open fuller.
How fast a bloom opens depends on the environment of its surroundings. Rose arrangements placed in direct sunlight, heat vents, or on heated surfaces will open faster. Arrangements in cooler environments, away from direct sunlight, will last longer.
