I have to admit, for having a blog called The Potted Boxwood, I don’t always have a magical green thumb. Sometimes a little faux plant action is necessary. A friend recently told me about a brand called New Growth Designs that creates very high quality faux plants and floral arrangements. Their greenery is UV Sustainable, which means that it won’t fade in the sun. They are so beautiful it is hard to tell they aren’t real!
While the brand is accessible primarily to the trade, it is available on several great shopping websites I have linked below. From topiaries to boxwood to peonies to fiddle figs, they pretty much make every great flower and plant you would want. Keep in mind, quality faux plants are investments that ultimately pay off in the long run of your floral and plant budget. While nothing replaces the smell and appeal of fresh flowers, these definitely come pretty close!
Bayberry Vine. If you can’t make vines, buy them!
