How long do Native Australian flowers last?

by Loan Pham on September 03, 2020

Native Australian flowers are longer lasting than most other cut flowers. Native flowers can last for up to two weeks or more.

The most common Australian native flowers include Banksia, leucadendren, proteas, budwax, thrip, gum, eucalyptus leaves and a whole array of mixed wild flowers.

Native flowers usually appear to be more woody and chunky, than other popular flowers like lilies or tulips.  This characteristic makes them more durable and long lasting. Generally native flowers do not have a strong fragrance and are low or no pollen.

Native flower bouquets can be dried and enjoyed for many months. If drying native flowers, some of the color may fade but most of the flower varieties will hold their shape and not fall apart like many other flowers.
