The "bush" resembles a "tree". Nicely packaged, arrived without damage. I cut the box lengthwise to remove it and never lost a single leaf. It's BIG! Very bushy, nice colors with the green on top and the deep red underneath each leaf. Very, very sturdy and it doesn't tip, need reinforcement or require repotting. Nice decorative room touch for a very reasonable price. As usual, Overprice had it in the mail quickly and it was delivered right on time!
When I first opened the box, I was a bit disappointed. It looked so artificial. It sat in the box for about a week before I took it out again. When I finally did and fluffed up the leaves and it sat for a couple of days, I thought it looked really nice. The packaging was a little beat up but the product was unharmed. I would definitely buy it again, and I may even buy another.
Based on the reviews I read for this product, I ordered it expecting it to be somewhat realistic. Although it was not terribly expensive for a plant this size, I am very disappointed in the quality and if not for the shipping cost, I would return it. The leaves are too uniform and shiny and are obviously artificial. This is the first time I have ordered an overstock product that I felt was poor quality
This tree is very nice. I bought this to replace a ficus that I have had for several years and had seen better days. This tree is very full and I like the way the trunk looks. It is a little shorter than I had hoped but still fills in the space nicely. I was also surprised at how small the container was. I had a decorative container that the other tree was in and in order to get this to fit I had to put floral foam on the bottom, put this tree in the container and then pack paper around it. I topped it off with a bag of spanish moss. I added white lights to the tree and it looks great when it's lit up. All in all I would recommend this tree if you have a small space to fill.
This tree is still growing on me (no pun intended!). I still haven't decided if it was worth the money. The tree arrived in an extremely banged up box. Upon opening the box and setting up the tree we realized the tree was positioned and glued off center in the basket. The tree would not stand up on its own. We had to lean it against the wall to keep it standing. My husband and I weren't too impressed with the basket the tree came planted in so we purchased a nice heavy secure planter from the local Lowes. We then had to remove the styrofoam and basket and replant the tree in the new planter that we secured with my husband's can of spray foam. We also had to buy more moss to cover the top as the old stuff was stuck to the old bottom. It was a heck of a lot of work for something purchased brand new. We are keeping the plant though. It is just not worth having to rebox it and return it. I still have not decided if I like it or not. So all in all a bad experience.
I was very pleased when this arrived. It is much better quality than what you would find in your local craft store. I had been looking in Michael's, etc., and this tree from Overstock was much fuller and colorful than what I found in the craft stores. The shape is beautiful. All I had to do was pull it out of the box and fluff a few leaves. Would definitely recommend!
I had a big room that required large scale design items. I was skeptical about this item's look being "real". A bad fake plant is like a bad toupe. But, my skepticism quickly dissipated when it arrived. The plant looks amazingly real and can compete at any price point. I put it in a large simple contemporary planter and it is a stunning addition to a large media room.
When I came home and saw the box on the porch I thought for sure the tree would be damaged. THe box was all crunched up, but to my suprise when I took the tree out, it was in great condition. I would recomend this item, and might even purchase another one myself.
