Prolonging Cut Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums are beautiful additions to a flower arrangement. To prolong the life of your cut flowers, remove the lower leaves. Leaves that are below the vase's water level will rot and pollute the water. You may also want to split the ends of chrysanthemum stems before putting them in the vase so that they can draw water into the stems more easily. Put your arrangement in a cool place at night to extend the life of your chrysanthemum blossoms.
