b) The height of the vase should also be considered. As a thumb rule, the ideal height of a vase is half in length than that of flowers. Lilies and daffodils have longer blooms, and hence they blend perfect with a tall vase. On the other hand, for close cut flowers such as daises and roses, a low, wide containers are best.

If the vases are to be placed on a shelf or a table, it is recommended to select vases with wider bases so that they do not topple over. If you want to place a vase outside the porch then select a taller vase so that it is noticeable.
f) Another factor that needs to be considered is the material of the flower vase. Flower vases are available in an array of materials. Glass flower vases can be expensive however they look stunning indoors. If you are looking for cheaper options, then you should go for terracotta, wooden or porcelain vases.
