They can be used in boutonnieres, corsages, bride bouquets, cake decorations, church arrangements and centerpieces. Wholesale roses can be combined pretty much with any flower available in the market.

Carefully unpack your Leonidas roses. They will need to be hydrated upon arrival.
Place your Leonidas roses in clean, fresh, filtered water. Carefully remove leaves, thorns or foliage that fall under the water level (without tearing the stem skin) to avoid the build-up of bacteria. Cut one inch of the end of the rose stem in a 45-degree angle (with a sharp knife NOT scissors) to allow water to be better absorbed through the stems.
After cutting the stem at an angle, quickly place the Leonidas roses in water since it only takes a minute for the stem to dry and seal up.
Keep Leonidas roses in a shaded, cool, relatively humid area (if possible under 45F). Avoid placing roses near heat surfaces or environments. Roses must be in water at all times until they are ready to be used.
Some growers do not remove guard (outer, worn) petals developed by roses as a preservation defense during delivery. If you receive roses with guard petals, remove them carefully before using theroses.
Do not keep your Leonidas roses in the refrigerator overnight since many food gases can cause a negative reaction in the flowers.
When storing your flowers, make sure that they are not moved from cold to hot or from hot to cold temperatures since drastic temperature changes will burn flowers.
