Ahh, the smell of fresh roses in your home all year long. Sounds great, right? Now, what if we told you just one bouquet could hold up for an entire year—without any watering or upkeep.

It might sound like a fairytale, but Rose Box NYC has done the impossible. The East coast flower company specializes in fresh cut roses that last one to three years, no maintenance required.

The roses come in signature round hat-box containers and are beautifully in bloom upon arrival. The box sizes range from a trio of single roses to an extra-large box containing 55 roses. There’s even a jumbo-size rectangular box with more than 150 roses.

To ensure that the roses last much longer than the ones you see at the grocery store, Rose Box NYC has a special preservation process. The organically grown flowers are sent to a lab where the rose’s sap and water are removed. A natural preserving liquid is then injected into the rose. Finally, the roses go for a dip in a mixture of alcohol and natural plant dye and are dried.

And you don't need to do much to keep the flowers looking perfect. Rose Box suggests keeping your flowers in a cool, dry room between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Occasional dusting may be needed and should be done with a soft duster. There is no watering or sunlight needed.

Rose Box is based in Manhattan, where they offer white glove delivery straight to your doorstep. However, they do ship to every zip code within the United States. Your flowers will arrive carefully packaged with foam to ensure safe delivery.

Customers can purchase pre-made rose boxes or customize their own. The customization option lets you choose from 8 box sizes, multiple container colors, several rose patterns, and 16 different rose colors. Specialty colors like gold and silver come with an extra charge of $50. Customers can add a customized message or logo to the box as well.

Their most popular purchase is the medium white box with red flame roses, proving that you can’t go wrong with the classics.

As expected, Rose Box roses are more expensive than the bouquets you might pick up on a whim. However, if you regularly purchase flowers, the investment is worth it. A mini box of five roses is $89 and a large box of 42 roses costs $479. Rose Box currently is offering 15% off Valentine’s Day pre-orders. Better Homes and Gardens readers can also get 15% off full-priced items using code BHG15.
