Have you ever thought: “I wish the beauty of that rose could last!”

Well, now that wish can come true at Beno’s Flowers & Gifts.  Stop in and see our preserved roses!

What are preserved roses?

They are 100% natural flowers that have undergone a preservation process (100% non-toxic) to maintain their beauty and freshness with no need for water nor sunlight. They are not artificial roses.

The freshly harvested plant is preserved by a process that absorbs a specific mixture of 100% plant-based and bio-degradable preservation ingredients.  The preserved roses are extremely resistant and long lasting. With the right care, you can enjoy your natural real rose for months or even years. And the roses do not require pruning nor watering in their preserved form.

Simply avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. The only care your roses will need is the occasional removal of dust, ideally with an air spray, air blower or alternatively dusting with a soft cloth.

Although the rose goes through a transformation process that stabilizes their natural beauty, the process does not use any kinds of components typically found in artificial flowers, such as plastic or synthetic fabrics.

Come in and experience the natural beauty of a rose preserved and arranged for your lasting enjoyment!
