Which flowers have long stems?
Flower varieties with long stems include delphiniums, calla lilies, gladioli, hydrangeas, sunflowers, carnations, and snapdragons. As well as this, you'll find a selection of long-stem exotic cymbidium orchids at Flowerbx. Long-stem lilies and roses are also favourites among flower lovers.
Which type of vase is best for long-stemmed flowers?
A tall vase is the best kind of vase style for flowers with long stems. At Flowerbx, we love to recommend our Tall Wickstead vase
for towering stems, as well as our Large Mayfair vase
or Large Apothecary vase
How do you arrange long-stem flowers in a vase?
To arrange a bouquet of long-stem flowers, follow our florist's favourite tips.
Cut your stems at a 45-degree angle to help with water absorption, but keep them long so you retain plenty of height. For woodier varieties, snip upwards at the base of the stem for maximum hydration, again, leaving lots of length on the stem.
Take a central stem in hand and layer the next over the top, until your flowers form a spiral. Keep the arrangement in a tighter bunch so they sit well within a narrow, tall vase.
Top up your arrangement with clean, fresh water and FLOWERBX flower food.
