Arranging Red Tulips: The third most popular flower in the world, red tulips symbolize a declaration
of love. Shipped in bud form directly from the “land of tulips”
in Holland, your red tulips have traveled a long distance and may be thirsty
upon arrival. Your red tulips will continue to grow and change after being
cut, so leave enough room for your red tulips to grow and move while arranging.
Don’t be afraid to cut, as your bouquet will look good with red
tulips in varying lengths. Red Tulips have a natural tendency to bend
and lilt, to seek light, so keep this in mind when placing your red tulip
bouquet under a direct light source.
Red Tulip Bouquet Care
Tips: Your red tulip bouquet has an estimated vase life of 4-6
days. If properly taken care of your red tulip bouquet may last longer.
Don’t be afraid to cut your tulip stems, as your bouquet will look
good with red tulips in varying lengths and will also help the tulips
drink water better. After trimming your red tulip stems, fill the vase
with lukewarm water and add first packet of floral food. Tulips are heavy
drinkers, so make sure you feed them some fresh water daily. To straighten
bent tulips, wrap the tulip stems tightly in damp newspaper, secure with
an elastic band, and stand in deep, lukewarm water with light directly
above them. Leave for a couple of hours, and red tulip bouquet will be
as good as new.
