Cut water lilies and such

I bet a water lily is the perfect cut flower. My old colleague and buddy Gina who works for Mariani Gardens in Armonk sent me this picture of cut water lilies that they are selling per stem. Aren't they amazing looking?! They're a little pricey but I bet it's worth the extra buck for their longevity and their colors are amazing! And speaking of cut flowers, this weekend the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is having a lunar new year flower market this Sunday. They're selling cut flowers, flowering indoor tropicals and also indoor fruiting trees (finally fruiting tree's!)

Waterlillies were tried as cut flowers in the 20's (?) in England but the problem was they closed at night. To solve this blobs of wax were dropped into the base of the petals. They never caught on though.
