Q: The cut roses I received are growing sprouts and new leaves. Are they able to be planted?
A: it is not uncommon for cut roses to sprout new leaves. However, they rarely sprout new roots. If the twigs don’t develop roots, they won’t survive being taken out of the water. That said, they won’t last much longer in the water because the stem ends can’t absorb nutrients. You can enjoy the flowers until the leaves begin to turn yellow.
