My local Wal-Mart also cut the prices and had massive quantities on hand; I grabbed a bucketload and have them at home to practice flower arranging with. But Wal-Mart is really unreliable when it comes to stuff like this.

Totally agree, even their "new" roses tend to wilt in a couple of days. I like Whole Foods and Central Market Roses

You can often revive droopy roses by cutting the stems and putting them in a vase of warm water with your choice of plant food (I use sugar plus a baby aspirin). IME it works so long as the flowers aren't actively dropping petals.
For those who got flowers for V-Day (as of about an hour ago I guess I'm on this list ) you should change the water every few days and trim the stems each time to get maximum flower life.

They more often than not last longer than the pitiful over-glamorized offerings from the over-priced online florists. Plus I know what they are going to look like by personally picking them out; rather than relying on glossy pictures that are not typical of what is delivered.
Just my 2 cents experience - "A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush."

Thank God I am not the only one. I pick every single flower and have the designer arrange them to my liking. The value for your money is way higher.
