Look for Plants With Some Unopened Buds

"Flowers last only so long. If the flowers of a specific plant are to last four weeks and you buy one in full bloom it may fade in one week, if [the flowers] have been open for three weeks already. Always choose a blooming plant with one or two unopened buds, as then you know the flowers will last their full span."
