I purchased a bunch of these same anemones from my local wholesaler for a prior wedding and they were in such poor condition that I could not even use them. Having purchased flowers from Fifty Flowers prior, I was confident that the quality would be fine for my upcoming wedding where I needed many of them. These totally exceeded my expectations. As a florist I always expect some waste..bad or broken blossoms, stems, etc. especially with such a fragile flower as these. But much to my surprise, these came in absolutely gorgeous. They opened beautifully and looked amazing, not to mention they lasted well beyond the day of the wedding (I did have some extras). To say the least, I am beyond satisfied with my experience and will use Fifty Flowers in the future. The customer service I received with this order was impeccable as well! Thanks Fifty Flowers for making me a happy florist and my bride and her mom ecstatic!
