Manufacturers have perfected making fake flowers, so well in fact that the new artificial azaleas available trick people into thinking they are actually real. When people find out they are not real, they recoil in terror, much the same way someone does when seeing a rubber snake. The fake azaleas currently being sold by Geranium Street Floral are uncanny they look and feel so real.
Anybody who has ever raised flowers or has had a flower garden knows how much work they are. Flowers are often fragile and temperamental. They don’t get enough sun, or get too much sun, and likewise, they don’t get enough water, or get too much water. Many busy people don’t have the time and patience to raise real flowers. Artificial azaleas look like real azaleas, but don’t require the constant attention, sunlight, and water.
Commercial property owners have realized that faux flowers just make sense – just install them and forget about them. Geranium Street Floral just made a big sale of their artificial azaleas to a commercial property owner in Beverly Hills. They redecorated a penthouse balcony with artificial flowers and fiberglass planters. People walk by the artificial azaleas every day and just assume that they are real.
The fake azaleas can be hung in hanging planters, or even placed among real plants and flowers. Crafters can go crazy making flower arrangements with these incredible plastic flowers. Geranium Street Floral currently has the artificial azaleas in several different colors, including pink, cream, and red. They are available in 18” or 34” sizes.
Bob Smith, president of Geranium Street recently returned from a big trade show in Asia, where he purchased a large volume of the faux azaleas. “I was so impressed by how authentic these look, I added them to our product roster. I also purchased many other other fake plant items, including fake bushes, trees, and artificial succulents,” said Smith. There are many pictures of the flowers and other items on Pinterest

Another home owner in one of Los Angeles exclusive beach communities installed a faux privacy hedge on his rooftop balcony, so he could better enjoy his daily beachfront sunsets. Another resident in the famous Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco did the same thing. The fake hedge works good on walls, fences, or can be constructed to stand alone.
