they’re faux?

Domino_fake_boxwoods

I couldn’t believe my eyes! My Domino finally arrived yesterday, so I was able to see all the goodness that has been buzzing in blogland.  When I saw this article… my jaw dropped over those “hedges”… at first site I thought it might Fig Vine {Ficus Pumila} (like Courtney’s (below) that I love)

But then I saw the planters and realized they were boxwoods… boxwoods that don’t die… PLASTIC BOXWOODS. Say what you will, but I like them.

    plastic boxwoods…now that’s my kind of shrub/plant [don't know the proper term] !! i probably couldn’t kill those…

  2. They look really great in the photo but I imagine the sun will fade the color out of them pretty fast.

  3. Fake huh?… The sun can’t have a good effect on those. I do like the look, but feel you could only pull those off in a small urban space like the one pictured… then again what do I know. I put down sod and am still trying to get it to dry up from all the rain.

  4. trompe l’oeil is always fun! Faux, wild!
    what’s that song, “Don’t fence me in”, but these are cheeky and great for a NY terrace for nude sunbathing! I mean not that I would do that…
    tee hee.

  6. The problems with plastic plants outdoors is that it gathers dust and grime and it looks awful very quickly.
