Silk hydrangeas have come a long way. Not that long ago they were viewed as cheap and nasty, not something anyone of taste would have had in their home.

But all that has changed. The new artificial flower is a far cry from the plastic blooms of yore; today’s silk hydrangeas are made of silk, many are hand painted and most are amazingly lifelike.


There is no reason not to welcome them to you home, and here are 21 reasons why you should go out of your way to do so.

  1. Silk flowers and plants are both realistic and beautiful.
  2. Their prices don’t change with the season.
  3. They last and last for years.
  4. Weather conditions don’t affect them.

  6. They don’t need to have their water changed.
  7. They won’t dry out.
  8. They won’t wilt.
  9. They don’t need to be fed.
