Do roses float?
Posted: Jul 14, 2007 10:23 PM

I plan on having floating roses as my centerpieces.  My FH has had some concerns about whether or not they will float.  We plan on cutting off the stem.  Does anyone know if just the flower part will float?

I don't know if roses float but it sounds like a good idea.

You should by a couple and try it out, I think I will too.LOL:)

The best flowers for floating are the ones with flat, open shapes--gerberas, sunflowers, gardenias, marigolds, dahlias, individual little orchids, all float. I would think that if your roses are wide open they should float fine. Why not buy a few blooms and experiment before making a final decision?

Roses definitely float.  I am having rose centerpieces.  I wanted submerged roses, so I am having to weigh them down alot.  Then there will be one floating on top.

Roses sort of tip over on their sides when you try to float them...

Options: Petals Float
or
You can artificially open the lower petals to create a base for them to float upon. But, yes, you will need to completely cut off the stems

I hope this helps!
