She did suggest the orchid and had some in a box arrangement in the colour I would like but had no other ones left unfortunately. I'm going to try a different florist tomorrow if I can.

Go to a nursery and get an orchid rather than a florist.
Lisianthus might last you a while but you will need to take care of them - fresh water every two days and trimming stems. Same as most cut flowers, really.

As others have said, go the potted orchid. I bought one this time last year and it had flowers on it for 8 weeks. It was a pale pink colour with three stunning flower spikes. It was a phalanopsis (sp?).
They can be quite expensive from florists. Do you have a local flower market you could go to?

Just quickly, I heard recently that the fluoride in tap water kills flowers.

For roses, you usually put sugar or bleach in the water to help them, also frequently change the water to help them last. Also I have heard, not to use cold water, but room temp, warm water when you put them in. Also cut the stems each time, which will help them last longer. If your search for other flowers fail Or find a house with a garden nearby with Roses, and ask them if they mind to take a couple for your home open LOL
