Valentine's Day flowers that last

Posted: Updated:

Valentine's Day is almost here, but there's something you must know.  If you're planning to give your sweetie flowers, you'll want to make sure they last longer than a few days.  How?  The experts from Pike's Nurseries showed us on Good Day!

CLICK ON THE VIDEOS ABOVE TO WATCH THE SEGMENTS!

Here are some of the suggestions the folks from Pike Nurseries offered:


Orchids
Orchids come in an array of colors from pure white, buttery yellow, purple and even bright blue
There are also different types of orchids to give you a nice variety to choose from

Florist Hydrangeas
Florist hydrangeas look great now with huge globe blooms
You can purchase them already wrapped so they're quick and easy to pick up

Florist Azaleas
The beautiful pink flowers look like they were made for Valentine's Day

VIZ Solar Glass
Great colorful glass sculptures that can be used for garden art
They are solar powered but still have an on/off switch to ensure they will glow when you'd like them to glow

Roses
Forget about cut roses – get a long-lasting rose bush
Pike Nurseries has over 50 different types of rose bushes
The roses aren't in bloom now but they will bloom in spring and for years to come
The roses come in plantable pots that go right in the ground so they are easy to plant
All roses are guaranteed for life at Pike Nurseries

Rose Garden Contest
