The Only Roses offers a beautiful long-stem rose option. Only one other long-lasting flower company offers this beautiful long-stemmed option, which is great for sending a dramatic gift. Long-stemmed roses are typically very expensive even when purchased fresh, and do not last as long as a cut bouquet.

Pros & Cons
Pros:

The Only Roses have gifts for the truly discriminating consumer who wants to shower their recipient with the ultimate in luxe. The teddy bear rose bouquets feature between 360-650 blooms which will last up to (and likely longer than) an entire year. These are real roses that have been preserved and professionally arranged into the shape of a teddy bear to create the ultimate floral gift imaginable.

The Only Roses flowers will last beyond a week, unlike a traditional bouquet. Traditional bouquets last possibly a week or longer, and during that week-long period, many of the blooms begin to wilt and die. Additionally, living flowers must be cared for by having water and plant food. The Only Roses bouquets do not require any care and never wilt. They look beautiful and freshly cut for up to and likely over one year.

The Only Roses are available in 24 vibrant colors. By purchasing long-lasting roses, you aren't limited to traditional fresh-cut rose color options. You can opt for roses in colors that match your recipient's personality, or roses that match your decor if you are purchasing them for your own home. There is no limit to the color combinations you can create when purchasing long-lasting roses.

The Only Roses is a floral gift that can be displayed around the recipient's home or office. Traditional bouquets must be set in areas of your home or office that receive adequate sunlight, but they usually displace other items instead of taking up permanent residence. With a long-lasting rose bouquet, you can have beautiful rose bouquets that can be used as permanent decorative features in your home. Unlike artificial floral arrangements which can look very kitsch, long-lasting rose arrangements are real, actual roses that have been treated to last for an entire year. It? like having a bouquet of fresh flowers year-round.

Cons:

The Only Roses floral bouquets are more expensive than traditional floral bouquets. If you wish to send a recipient a dozen roses, you will definitely pay more for The Only Roses bouquets. They are at least double the price per bloom than fresh flowers, which may make them non-accessible for some budgets.

The Only Roses offers a very limited selection of gift options other than floral arrangements. These include single rose keychains and small teddy bears that hold a rose. It should be noted that their gift options that are not floral bouquets do still contain a flower. If you wanted to purchase a non-floral gift, The Only Roses does not have an option.

The Only Roses may not be appealing to recipients who would prefer fresh flowers. If you are purchasing an arrangement for a fresh flower purist, they may not be happy with long-lasting roses. The process by which long-lasting roses are made eternal does kill the flower, so they are not technically living.

The Only Roses does not offer as many customization options as some competitors. If you are looking for a bouquet that is fully customizable, you are limited on options with The Only Roses.
