The quality for the price paid was just not there for me on this product, so I sent it back. The leaves are a thick pliable plastic. Rods and stems are a cheap plastic, too. The color printed on the petals seemed too fake and "off" to me. There is a silk flower shop two hours away from me that produces incredible arrangements. I think I have been spoiled by the quality available there. This arrangement is decent but not worth the price.
