When searching for artificial outdoor plants, many people desire beauty and durability. Depending on where you live, you may have heavy sun exposure or cold and snow in winter. And that's where outdoor artificial plants win the day. Or should we say, "Days?" Our high-quality faux outdoor plants can and do last a long time without the hassle of watering and weeding. And their beauty is sublime.
Whether you're shopping for outdoor artificial plants for the first time or adding to a growing landscape, you'll find all you need right here. From flowers to outdoor greenery plants, the possibilities are nearly endless. We also carry artificial outdoor plants that are water-resistant and others that are UV-resistant or UV-proof. When choosing UV artificial plants, it's important to know the difference.

Some of our outdoor plants are UV resistant (1 year of no fading) or UV proof (5 years).
