Ode à la Rose is the best florist for roses in NYC and only uses the highest quality roses in the world thanks to its selective partnerships with the most reputable farms in Ecuador and Colombia.
All of our rose farmers’ greenhouses are located at elevations of 8,000 feet or more above sea level which provides our roses with perfect growing conditions thanks to longer days and increased sunlight as well as optimal temperatures.
We have access to thousands of rose varieties which we use for our bouquets all year long. In addition, we constantly search for new species and introduce new varieties to our customers.
Thanks to our unique shipping logistic which enables us to get our roses fresh from the farm, the vase life of our roses is at least 7 days but can last much longer if proper care is taken.
A rose is like a woman: if you treat it right it will bloom! So please don’t forget to give a little attention to your roses! Once you receive your Ode à la Rose bouquet, remove the green humid floral foam at the bottom of the stems and follow these few quick easy steps in order to prolong the vase life of your arrangement.
Fill about 3/4 of a clean vase with fresh, room temperature water and don't forget to add the flower food provided in your gift box.
Before you place the flowers in the water, remove any foliage that may fall below the water line. This will prevent the growth of bacteria and enhance the vase life of your roses.
ideally, cut about an inch off the stems at an angle, preferably with clippers, and place your roses immediately in the vase.
Repeat these steps every 2 to 3 days. Fill your vase with clean water, remove any foliage under the waterline, cut the stems and place your bouquet back in the vase.
