Submerged Flowers

For my centerpieces, I'm planning on having a cylinder vase with river rocks and a submerged purple gerber daisy. Does anyone know how long a real flower can last under water? Or should it be fake? Thanks!!!!

    I thivk it depends on the flower. I heard that calla lillies are great for being submerged but I've never heard that for daisies

    If it was just the stems in the vase, you should generally plan on changing the water every 3 days.  So a submerged flower should last at least a day or two. 

    Why don't you pick up a small bunch of gerbers at the grocery store to practice with, and make a note on how long they last.  Sometimes the flowers tend to not stay anchored and float to the top.

    I'm curious, what did you find? How long did they last, and did they float?
