Since the Victorian era, giving flowers has been a favorite way of expressing affection to a love interest without uttering a word. Their acclaim is attributed in part to the rich symbolism associated with them. Red roses in particular have stood the test of time, reaching across cultural and political lines, embodying concepts of love, beauty, and romance. Today, roses are still prized for conveying deep sentiment. That's why at Palm Springs Florist, we only use imported long-stem Ecuadorian roses in our arrangements. So, order a bouquet of stunning blossoms today to show someone how much you care.
Roses produced in Ecuador are cultivated under ideal conditions to create this lush and vibrant flower. Ecuadorian rose farms are situated high in the Andes Mountains foothills, about 10,000 feet above sea level.
They thrive in the higher elevations, where cooler temperatures slow rose development, allowing their stems to develop tall and straight, often up to five feet. Plus, the Ecuadorian sun shines 12 hours a day, year-round, which means artificial lighting is not needed during winter months.
Because of the optimal conditions found there, Ecuadorian roses also grow larger blooms, have thicker stems, and last longer than roses grown in Africa, Holland, or Colombia. In fact, with proper care, these hearty blossoms can last up to two weeks in a cut flower arrangement, about twice as long as an average rose.
How to Care for Ecuadorian Roses
An Ecuadorian rose bouquet delivered by Palm Springs Florist doesn’t require additional care or attention than standard roses or other cut flowers. However, to make their arrangement last, your recipient should:
Change the water regularly: Fresh water every two to three days will keep the blooms healthy and inhibit the growth of bacteria and mold.
Mist with water occasionally: A periodic spritzing will reinvigorate rose blossoms, helping them last longer.
Avoid direct sunlight: While growing flowers rely on sunshine to flourish, cut flowers can become brown or wilted in a sunny or overly warm spot.
Remove wilted petals: When a blossom starts looking tired, your rose recipient should pluck and discard any wilted outer petals to help revive and extend their flower’s vibrancy.
