About Rose Athena

Rose Athena

Rose Athena reminds everyone of the famous song: "White roses from Athens" by Nana Mouskouri. This rose enchants by its reliable opening of the flower and long vase life. Not only for producers but also for customers this rose is something special. The white flower contrasts beautifully with the dark, glossy foliage. Due to its quality characteristics, Athena plays a well-established role in the actual assortment of roses.

Thick Stems, Large Buds

Rose Athena, a white/ivory-colored premium rose similar to Ecuadorian roses. This rose has thick stems, large size buds or flower blooms, and lively colors and lasts long after being cut. The Rose Athena is very popular with florists, supermarkets, weddings & events. Use these vibrant flowers to make elegant simple submerged centerpieces. Between the floral color and shape, not many other flowers are needed to make a statement.

Rose Athena Care Tips

  • Use a clean vase
  • Flower food improves the life of your flowers significantly, and prevents the necks from bending
  • Cut a few centimeters off the stem at an angle to open the veins for absorbing water
  • Remove only the foliage at the bottom up to the point where the stem is in the water
  • Refill the water when it gets 'cloudy'
  • Keep the vase away from vegetables and fruits, because the ethylene gas produced by these will damage your flowers
  • Take dying flowers out, so they won't infect the others
  • Keep your flowers away from high temperatures and direct sunlight
