Which flower makes the cut at Miei?

High-quality, long-lasting and, of course, beautiful.

These are the standards each and every flower stem must meet before making it into a miei Corporate arrangement for our clients and customers. So what makes an ideal miei corporate flower? Here are the most important things we look for:

Long vase life 

We always intend for our bouquets and arrangements to look amazing for as long as possible, so we look for flowers that pass our internal minimum 10-day test. Throughout that time period, we closely monitor water uptake and decay process and ultimately determine whether they satisfy our criteria. 

To assist with longevity, our flowers aren't stored in a warehouse for a long time, but are usually freshly cut 24-48 hours before being packed and transported to us for use. 


Each bloom holds up differently under warm, cool, humid and windy conditions, so a miei flower must be hardy in all possible indoor climates. Each week, our team conducts visits to assess how our flowers are behaving in each of our client's corporate spaces. Due to Melbourne’s ever-changing weather conditions, we document any noted abnormalities to help us rectify accordingly, which may include complimentary stock replacements within 24 hours. Our ultimate goal is to ensure our clients display only the best and freshest flowers and greenery, that are appropriate for their space and unique environment.

Low maintenance

We can’t expect our clients and customers to have the time or knowledge to take care of their specific blooms the way we would. That’s why we make sure our arrangements are always low maintenance. They will look amazing for a long time, with little or no TLC necessary. 

Lower pollen

The last thing we want is for our flowers to cause anyone’s allergies to play up; sneezing, watery eyes and a red nose really do take the enjoyment away! That’s why we choose low-allergen flowers such as orchids, anthuriums, chrysanthemum and helleconias that are kind to those of us who suffer from allergies.


Sticking to our high standards and our purchasing guidelines means that each client and recipient receives beautiful, low-maintenance flowers that will look amazing for longer. To make the cut as a miei flower isn’t easy, but the end product makes the time and care we take when it comes to selection absolutely worth it.
