Are your hydrangeas wilting before your eyes? In our Arizona dry air, hydrangeas are a little like a diva - they are gorgeous when they are fresh, and they collapse when they are thirsty or when the water isn't clean. 
Put the head of the flower in a bowl of water for an hour, then give the stem a sharp angular cut, and reinsert it into your arrangement. Or, place in a vase by itself with lukewarm water and let it sit overnight either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. 
When ordering hydrangea, ask that they be designed in a vase with water or with a clear water source, not in floral foam - they will last longer in our Arizona dry air!

And now for roses:

Don't soak roses for an hour, though! With roses, trim the outer petals as they die away, and cut the stem every couple of days. Make sure you don't allow the water to turn cloudy and use the floral food each time you change the water. This can add days, and sometimes weeks, to the length of your gorgeous blooms.

When ordering roses, make sure you get them from a source that hydrates them properly.
