Plants for Cutting and Arranging icon Plants For Cut Flowers
bar graphic

Not all flowers are suitable for cutting and arranging. Those that have long, sturdy stems and the endurance to last at least a day in a vase of water are best for fresh arrangements. "Everlastings" - flowers (or other parts of the plant) that remain attractive and don't fall apart - are best for dried arrangements. Consider planting a row or two of annual flowers for cutting in your vegetable garden or near the kitchen door so you can gather fresh flowers whenever you harvest vegetables. Also included on this list are any plants that provide materials (leaves, bark, etc.) that are useful in both fresh and dried arrangements.
