If a chosen color and/or variety is unavailable at the time of shipping, Whole Blossoms will match the color and/or variety as closely as possible. Farm growing conditions, weather conditions, market demand, and other general forces may result in the unavailability of the flowers shown without notice.
While online photos shown are representations of flowers available for sale, actual colors and specifications delivered may vary somewhat since flowers are a product of Mother Nature, different browser types effect the outcome of displayed photos, and computer monitors may show differences in detail, definition, contrast, brightness, and color.
Your fresh Whole Blossoms Aster will need to be hydrated upon arrival.
Unpack flowers as soon as you receive them and cut about one inch of the stem at an angle (with a sharp knife NOT scissors). Remove foliage that could fall under water to avoid bacteria to build‐in and place the flowers in clean, fresh, filtered (non-chlorinated) water. Keep flowers in water at all times and add floral preservative as needed.
If your flowers are not going to be used or displayed immediately, try to keep them in a fresh place preferably (38F‐58F) and at least 80% humidity in fresh water with floral preservative. If floral preservative is not available, pour a spoon of sugar in the water (to help open the flowers) and one drop of bleach (to keep bacteria away). Do not put more than one drop of bleach in the water. Replace water and floral preservative every two days to ensure long vase life. Do not store flowers in front of an AC unit since blowing air can dry your flowers. Do not store your flowers inside of the refrigerator.
Asters are ethylene sensitive so they need to be kept away from fruit and vegetables to ensure long vase life.

Please ensure someone is available to receive your flowers from FedEx as flowers are perishable and require immediate proper care and handling. Flowers dropped off outside may expose flowers to excessive heat or cold which can wilt and/or kill flowers. Therefore, Whole Blossoms strongly recommends having someone available to assume receipt of flowers at the time of delivery.
