Wholesale flowers are no bargain if you have to buy in ten bunch minimums. That's when I made the decision to carry more than just florist supplies in my online store. No bride can afford DIY bouquets if they are forced to buy more flowers than they really need.
Anemones (also known as Poppies) are available in white, red, dark blue and a deep burgandy (almost black). Don't think that these flowers are "wilted" upon arrival - the bent neck is characteristic of these flowers.
When you receive your anemones, cut the flower stems under water and remove any faded stem base. Remove all foliage that will rest below the water line. Place in a clean container filled with tepid water. It is best for the flower is the water is treated with a flower preservative.
Store flowers in a cool area away from direct sunlight until your event. Recommend frequent misting with flower sealant such as Finishing Touch. Helpful if you run a cool mist humidifier in same area as the flowers are stored.
