These are the first cut flowers I ever had in my home that has lasted over 2 weeks and as they fade they are not dropping and making a huge mess on my end table. Last night they were put to the test and left in the room where the wood burning stove is. The room was well over 75*F with dry heat and the tulips withstood after being cut and shipping from California to Ohio 2 weeks ago. Every cut flower arrangement I've ever received from Stargazer Barn comes wrapped just perfect. These tulips filled the room with a beautiful spring scent. I recommend if you are wanting to send flowers to someone spherical to go with Stargazer Barn because they have a large selection, great prices and the flowers are always perfect!
