I harvested the FLORIST MUMS over a week and a half ago before the hard freeze. I kept the big 5" blooms, with their leaves stripped off, in a big bucket of water with a floral preservative added,  in a cool place. This arrangement should last well over a week. NOTE:  This arrangement lasted 4 weeks--I have found that mums have one of the longest vase life's of all the flowers I arrange.  When I picked it up today it was still looking fresh--even with only 1'2" water left in the bottom of the vase....Unbelievable!
