Eternal Roses (also known as preserved or forever roses) are 100% REAL ROSES that have been grown, cultivated and preserved to last for years.They go through a procedure which consists of discoloration, treatment with glycerin and other natural elements, and finally coloration. This unique preservation technique creates fresh-looking roses that will last for up to 4 years (see Product Care).

The process of preserving roses, stems, sunflowers, etc. is different than drying out flowers.

Drying flowers is usually done by hanging them upside-down and letting them airdry for several weeks. This process results in dehydrated, colourless, fragile roses, stems and leaves.

Preserved Roses are cultivated and immediately treated to keep them looking at their best for years! The preservation method includes adding non-harsh elements such as glycerine to the flowers and colouring them.

Our roses are grown and handpicked in Ecuador. This South American country is the third largest flower export and the biggest rose producer and export in the world.

Due to Ecuador’s climate and altitude, roses grow under adequate conditions all year long. This country is located on the earth’s equator, which means roses receive more natural sunlight than elsewhere. Our roses are cultivated in a city situated in the Andean mountains with an elevation of almost 3,000m (approx. 9,840 feet) above sea level. This also contributes to the roses’ ideal growing conditions.

Ecuadorian roses are known to be the largest and best-looking roses worldwide. At ALUNA, we make sure all of our preserved arrangements include high quality flowers that will last you for years (see Product Care).

It can be love, friendship, loyalty, respect, etc.
