Two roses can grow in the same plot of soil, receive the same sun and rainfall, yet look like two completely different shades of pink. Mother Nature don't give a shit.
Because of the natural variance in flowers, we cannot offer a color match guarantee. But neither can a florist.
We take our flo...
Do I need to use flower food?

YOUR DENTED HYBRID WAS BORN FOR THIS!
