Perennial Cut Flowers Zone6 :
with long vase life
Perennial Gardening Flowers
What I like the most about perennial flowers is their long vase life.
Around my house they last at least week and I only change the water every couple of days. I re-cut their stems if they start to rot. Sometimes I just go out and cut fresh flowers, because I want a change.
The only flowers I don't have any luck with are lilacs. It doesn't matter what time of day I pick them and what I condition the water or stems with the results are always the same. They just droop over. So I admire them outside and wonder how other people do it.
My other perennial flowers that I can cut and bring indoors in Zone 6.
Some of them are herbs like Feverfew, but they have pretty little white flowers and last a long time in a vase.
Other Perennials that I use as a cut flower for my home are:
Spring bulb flowers like, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, forsythia, lilies, shasta daisies, phlox, lupins, chrysanthemums, irises, primroses, hydrangeas, peonies,ornamental grasses, roses and fall asters.
I don't add any preservatives in the water either and they just bless me with fragrance and beauty for a long time. :)
I also pick my flowers early in the morning when it's still cool out and that's also the time that I have my coffee and take pictures.
