So how can roses even last that long? The company claims that while the roses are one hundred percent natural flowers, they are derived from the mineral rich volcanic soils of Ecuador in South America. The soil is believed to give them uniquely strong petals which grow up to ten times thicker and five times larger than any other flowers.

In addition to using soil from Ecuador, the company is said to have a 'secret potion' that preserves the flowers. While they won't reveal any of the ingredients that provide the rose with immorality, some have speculated that the elixir most likely contain a mixture of glycerin and other oils.
