Comments about Silk Azalea Bush:
I initially got six of the white. (I don't know if the other colors would fade outdoors in the outdoor sunlight.) These artifical flowers are beautiful! I used them outside all summer in a narrow dark green planter/flower box weighted down with bricks: for each of six "sprigs", I bent the bottom end at a 90 degree angle; I tied pairs of two together at the bottom with strong string (there is something toward the end that can be used to catch the string so it doesn't slip off the end)leaving about 4 inches of string between each pair of sprigs and anchored each pair with a brick over the string giving 3 pairs, with each pair anchored with a brick in an approximate 3 ft dark green narrow flower box. Just the flowers show over the top of the flower box. The flower box and contents held-down/secured my flat opaque window-well cover at the side of our house (I pushed the box close to the house). The 6 sprigs were easy to arrange so they filled the flower box side to side and they really looked beautiful and alive. I did bring them inside for our snowy winter -- I just put the pairs in a platic waste-paper-basket liner-bag and closed the bag with a twist'em tie, labeled the bags and put them in the garage until next spring, when I plan to put them back in the planter box again. Yes, they held-up so well (even in the rain) that they should last multiple years. They were so like-like and beautiful, that I've gotten six more for another flower box setup on the other side of my house. You can see them from the street and they are a very pretty accent to the house. (I would think that one sprig would also be good to stick into the ground at a gravesite (do it after a rain when the ground is soft and stick the sprig way down, all the way to its flowers, so that the sprig won't blow-away) -- the bottoms of these sprigs are a little thicker than other kinds that just have a long straight thin plastic-coated wire, which may be easier to stick into the ground than these that have the thicker ends.) These flowers held-up well in the wind. They would also be good inside the house. They are the prettiest, detailed, life-like artificial flower I've come across and the fact that they can be used inside or outside is great!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

A very good choice for your yard

I have used all three colors of these azaleas in my yard with great success. People assume they are live flowers.
Reasonably priced & realistic looking
A good choice to mix with real plants for a beautiful display.
Beautiful and looks very real
I have three colors of these in my yard. From a very short distance, they look like live flowers.
