Chinese New Year Flowers

Every eve of Chinese New Year, my family goes out to eat and stay out late buying flowers and candy. I don't know if buying flowers and candy is traditional or not, but they sure brighten the rooms we cleaned before the New Year. Many of Toronto's East Asian marketplaces usually have flower booths set up in large hallways during special occasions. There would be a good selection of flowers and trees on sale. Orchids, lilies, chrysanthemums, and irises are a few flowers that could be found every year.

I wonder what the vendors do with the flowers that didn't sell.
