A closer look at English Rose

Britain’s favourite flower, a rose has a classic look that suits any room, in any home. And of our three life-like English Rose stems, Dusky Pink gives you the softest, most romantic colour. Use one stem on its own in a tall bottle like Castleford or create a large bouquet with an interesting mixture of greenery.

Why life-like?

Having foliage and flowers in your home makes such a difference – they’re one of those final touches that helps it feel more lived in. And stems that look as good on Friday as they did on Monday are even better – no water to change, nothing to trim, no dead-heading, no mess, no fuss. And no wilting.

From real-life to life-like

Based on an English shrub rose, this stem’s full shape makes it easy to arrange. With three flowers on a single stem – a tight bud, an opening bud and a flower in bloom – it adds volume to any bouquet. For even more realism, it even has non-spiky ‘thorns’. We also hand-paint it so that no two look the same – just like in real life – and there’s a wire inside that lets you bend it realistically.


Sometimes natural materials are best, other times synthetic. For our life-like stems, it’s polyester that creates the most realistic blooms. Easy to dye, it’s vibrant and colourfast so your stem won’t fade. And it can be made matte or shiny to look exactly like the real thing.

Just so you know

The wire in the stem is tough so you can’t accidentally snap it. But you’ll need something powerful if you want to trim it down. We’ve found long-handled loppers (the ones for pruning shrubs and trees) or wire cutters do the trick.

The wire inside also means you can’t put your stem in water for long or it’ll rust. So if you’re arranging it with real flowers, bend the life-like stem up out of the water.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

With smaller designs we tend to use one of three couriers; the three that we think are the best. It means that we can get your order out to you sooner. You’ll receive an email from our delivery partner to confirm your delivery date within 24 hours of us dispatching the item (or items).

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. We offer a free returns service on accessories and all the details on what you need to do will be on your delivery note. Just make sure you keep hold of the packaging.
