Please note the definition of the word "SILK" in the title or description, if used, does not mean the item is made out of silk. Silk flowers, silk plants & silk trees were named this over a hundred years ago when they were originally sewn with silk. While we still label them as "SILK", the current manufacturing methods use synthetic fibers and high-tech processes to create botanically accurate, realistic reproductions.
Unless otherwise stated, all measurements given for any potted item are measured from the bottom of the pot to the outstretched tip. This simply means if you point the longest leaf or frond straight up, you measure the furthest most measurement. Anything that is not potted is measured from the bottom of the stem to the tip of the furthest point. Any other items are always outside measurements, taking the tallest or widest measurement possible. Floral arrangements are more exact as these are pre-arranged and do not change shape after being created.
