How long does a Christmas Lily last?
A Christmas Lily will last up to three weeks, and can last longer when cut and put in a vase than they would when left on a plant. Their flower buds can take a week to fully open, then last for another week to two weeks following that. You should keep your Christmas Lily stems in their own vase for the first week, after which they can be arranged with other stems.

You can also shop for winter roses, which come in shades including festive red and snowy white.
