Difference between preserved flowers, dried flowers and fresh flowers


In recent years, a product called preserved flowers has gradually risen in the flower market and is known as a flower that will never fade. What's so special about it? How is it different from flowers and dried flowers? We will disassemble it for you now!


A) The difference between preserved flowers and fresh flowers

What is the difference between preserved flowers, dried flowers and fresh flowers?

Preserved flowers and flowers look and feel almost the same. Flowers can be stored for several days to several weeks, and flowers can be preserved for at least 2 years. If properly maintained, they can even last for 6 or 7 years.

In addition to differences in shelf life, flowers need to be taken care of with sufficient water and sunlight to maintain their longevity. Conservation of flowers is just the opposite. Preservation of flowers does not require irrigation and sunlight. It only needs to be placed in a proper place for long-term preservation.

Because the color of the preserved flowers is dyed at a later stage, the preserved flowers can have richer and unique colors than the flowers, such as metallic color / with glitter. This can give more creative space for floral art.


B) The difference between preserved flowers and dried flowers

Although dried flowers have a shelf life similar to that of preserved flowers, they have very different appearances.

Preserved flowers are made with special technology, which retains the appearance and touch of flowers. Dried flowers are generally made by natural air-drying / drying, which will cause the flowers to shrink and petals to wrinkle due to dehydration, and they will become weak and prone to chipping. In addition, the color of dried flowers will become dull due to air-drying, and the flowers will lose their vividness and low plasticity.


C) Advantages of preserved flowers

In addition to the above differences from the flowers and dried flowers, of course, there are many unique advantages of the preserved flowers. I will explain them one by one.

1. Style diversity

Because flowers are kept for a short period of time, if they are made into more complicated floral products, they can only be kept for several days to several weeks, which is really a waste. The preserved flowers have a long shelf life, so they are suitable for making all kinds of decoration and flower gifts, such as glass covers that are common to everyone, but also bouquets, glass flower boxes of various shapes, and even flower balls of great memorabilia. Wait.

2. Color selection

As mentioned above, because the color of preserved flowers is dyed at a later stage, it has greater autonomy than flowers, and it is more vivid in color than dried flowers. Preserved flowers can be made into a variety of colors, such as gradient colors, colors, and metallic colors. The resulting floral products can be more unique and give consumers more choices.

3. Price

The price of preserved flowers is the same as that of flowers, which varies according to their origin and quality. Therefore, the price of preserved flowers is also rich and frugal, and you can choose according to your budget. However, it is important to note that there are currently two major producers of preserved flowers, namely China and Japan. The quality of flowers produced in Japan is more guaranteed, both in terms of flower shape and color. In addition, the flowers imported from Japan use more quality potions and dyes in the production process. The Chinese production is divided into many grades, and the quality and safety are also relatively poor. Everyone must choose carefully when choosing!
