A property manager in Beverly Hills recently made a large purchase of fake azaleas to brighten up a penthouse courtyard. They purchased several fiberglass planters and then filled them with cream colored, pink, and red artificial azaleas. Geranium Street Floral of San Marcos, California provided the artificial flowers.
The most important part of this story is that the flowers look real – so real that most people would be shocked to find out that they are not. The difference is that real flowers require constant maintenance, care and attention, while fake flowers require none of that. Artificial flowers thrive on nothing! They only need to be dusted off now and then.
Geranium Street Floral has made a special purchase of pink, cream colored, and red faux azaleas in 18”
or 34” sizes. These can be mixed and matched and made into all kinds of handsome arrangements. A new industry may sprout up for artificial florists. These beautiful fake flowers can be placed among real plants, or other artificial plants.
Geranium Street Floral began as the founder was supplying artificial plants and flowers to equestrian events. He soon found out that people all over the country also wanted fake plants for their homes and offices. Commercial property owners especially like them due to the low maintenance factor.
The fact that high end property managers in upscale Beverly Hills are buying artificial flowers speaks volumes for the quality of the product. The artificial flowers of the past looked artificial and didn’t hold up to the elements, but these highly durable uv rated artificial azaleas will last for years and look good as new. The residents of the building may never know that they aren’t live flowers.
