Faux Podocarpus Ball is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color doesn't last The faux podoarpus ball was just what I was looking for to put in my Zoey urns on my covered front porch. I'd read that the color didn't last for some customers but decided to give them a try. Yes, my porch is covered but gets full morning sun. Unfortunately, my bright green "plants" are now blue-green. These are not cheap items and I'm disappointed I didn't get more than a year and a half out of them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice looking We had a hard time trying to tie down inside our pots so the wind would not blow them away. I am returning and will purchase something attached to a branch type Faux to place in my pots. These would be better if they had something attached so that you can place them in a pot with out them blowing away or grandkids grabbing them. They also come apart easily so don't try and pick them up from the top. We learned the hard way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic These Podocarpus balls are perfect for my urns by my front door. My front door doesn’t get much sun so I’m not sure how they would fare under direct sunshine. They look very real and even on windy days they have stayed in place with nothing holding them down. I just pushed them down a bit when I put them out the first time. Love them! No watering!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flat on both ends The top and bottom are both flat, not round as the ball should be. This was disappointing. I was able to lift part of it up, but shouldn’t have had to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is it really Faux? This faux ball looks so full, beautiful and real, There is no way you would ever know it is faux unless you touch it. I love them. I purchased 2 and they are on each side of my front door. I have bought many things from Grandinroad and have never been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gardners thought they were real! I bought two of these balls to place in round urns at our entry. They look completely realistic so that I had to tell the gardners not to trim them! They came well packed and ready to use. I highly recommend them to add no maintenance greenery to any part of your yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The size is perfect for the pots on the deck! They look so good on the deck I bought a third one for my bedroom! I do rotate the ones outside so they stay in good shape. I store them in a deck box for winter. I have purchased many items from Grandin Road and they do not disappoint! Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific!!!!! Bought two for my Zoey and three smaller for my black urn planters...(can't think of their names but they begin with a "G" also from Grandin Road)..so all together I purchased five in all...two large and three smaller ones....they are gorgeous..and I am NOT (... and I repeat.... NOT) one for faux stuff, but got tired of re-purchasing new shrubs every year because of this very hot and then very cold weather.....I have purchased from other companies for variety, ONLY..GR,make some cypress, boxwood and spruce shrubs an I will only purchase from you guys..... GRANDIN ROAD are the best as far as looks, quality. curb appeal....don't hesitate...you will be glad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Life like! Worth the money! When I bought these, I assumed they'd look fake and I thought they were expensive...HOWEVER, I am a believer and am buying another one. I have boxwoods right in front of them and you can't tell the difference. I plant things every year and they die constantly so I am now on my third one and get a ton of compiments. Worth the money. Also, they are flexible, almost like a durable balloon so you can jam them into a planter and not worrry that they'll break off. Take the plunge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauty without the hazzel I purchased two podocarpus balls to fill my Zoey planters. The combination coupled w a Grandin Road wreath gave new life to my Tudor home. The neighbors love them and I am a hit in my new community

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks exactly like the photo! The Faux Podocarpus Balls are a little more faux than I'd hoped but they fill the Zoey urns very well and will do for now. I think some of the more summery fillers are a little more realistic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FABULOUS! Don't hesitate on this one! Bought 2 large- love them - color gorgeous, the specific materials are realistic and very attractive. Also got the white ester planters - gorgeous. You can tie them down from the bottom if they want to blow away - easy. (The doggie topiaries, different quality, color off, cheesy,not high quality like the faux podocarpus balls.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic faux bush looks great on porch I ordered two of these faux balls to place in pots I had purchased for my front porch. Previously, the real shrubs that I had planted died and I had yet to replace them. Rather than needing to water all the time, I purchased faux plants instead. These look real, particularly from a distance, and gratefully do not require watering. Also, our porch has a strong wind that tends to damage live plants, so having something like this has been great. It looks good everyday, stays well sitting on top of the pot and no watering required. I may order a couple more to put in pots on the backside of our house on the sides of the garage doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I am quite pleased so far with these podocarps balls. I bought two for my front where I was having trouble keeping live plants alive due to forgetting to water them, etc. They look real and and look great both up close and from the street!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Urn This artificial plant looks so natural and fits perfectly into the Zoey urn. It is so nice to have a courtyard plant that doesn't require any maintenance at all. I will be ordering another one along with another urn. Prompt delivery and excellent packaging.

I purchased the large stainless Steele planter (16 across). Would the large faux podocarpus ball (18 across) work? 

Asked by: Knic
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. The 18" ball will work with the 42" Stainless Steel Column Planter with Insert (163369).

I have a round planter with a diameter of about 14 inches. Is the 14in ball the right size or will it sink too low? If iIget the larger one will it push in snug, or will it be too high and blow out with any wind? please let me know what's best. thank you

Asked by: ball
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. The 14" ball will fit into your 14" planter but will not have the full look like the picture. It will sink into your planter.

What size width does the planter need to be to hold the 14" Faux Ball?

Asked by: marthar
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. Anything smaller than 13 1/2" should work for the 14" ball.

Is this attached to a stake to be used to hold it in urn? Or is it just a round ball of greenery?

What are dimensions of the base of ball that sits down into an urn. Is it round or square. How do you know it fits in an urn?

What size pot should I buy 

Asked by: AmyBaby
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. What size planter you will need will depend on how full or over full of a look you want. This item should go far enough into your planter to fit securely. The size listed for this item is the diameter around the widest, center point. So you will want the interior opening of the urn to be 14" or 18" and smaller. We picture it in many of our planters including Devon, Copper Footed, Esther, Lucas, Zoey, Nantucket, and the Zara.

I asked a guestion if a 14" ball would be the right size for an 11" urn. If this works I want to take advantage of the sale. You replied you would get back in 24 hrs. The sale will be over!

Asked by: W313
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. You can use the 14" ball in an 11" Urn, it will have a very full look.

Wondering if these have a metal frame. I want to secure them in urns outdoors so they don’t blow away!

Asked by: Jilliano
Thank you for your interest in the Faux Podocarpus Ball. This item should go far enough into your planter to fit securely. It does not come with a way to attach it to a planter.
