Flowering Stages

Stage 1: One to Two flowers open.  The first flowers have now opened, but the majority of buds still remain.  This is one of the most popular stages for shipping because the plant is immediately sellable, but it still has lots of shelf life remaining.

Stage 2: Half open.  About half the flowers are open and about half remain to open.  The plant is showy but still has significant shelf time left.

Stage 3:  Fully Bloomed.  The most showy.  Great for immediate impact, but a reduced shelf life.
