Bouquet type Silk FlowersWe all know about the real flowers as well as the artificially replicated flowers that are showcased in interiors. But do we know that there is one kind of flowers, named Silk Flowers, which are neither real flowers nor artificial ones? The silk flowers are nothing but the conglomeration of both, where the stem is taken from original tree while the flowers and leaves are ingeniously done by using different materials. The artificially done flowers are skillfully pierced into the original stem to give the real tree look with colourful flowers in full bloom.

A rare exhibition witnessed by HyderabadisThe rare and exotic range of aesthetic silk flowers were displayed in an exhibition held recently at Jubilee International Club by 'The Show Case', city based leading importer of artificial flowers and plants. The three day exhibition captivated many flower connoisseurs of the twin cities. The visitors were delighted to have greenery all at one place.

Looking as if like a real plant "The silk flower manufacturing is a rare Chinese art, that has the power to attract any eye. The overall beauty of the flowers adds pleasant ambience to interiors,"
said D.N. Shankar, owner of The Show Case. The Silk flower manufacturing is practiced in few places in India. In this art, Silk flowers are created in two styles, flower bouquet type having only flowers and plant type with both flowers and stem.

The display showcased the finest range of bouquet type and plant type silk flowers, which included Persial Lilac, 84 Cm Philanopsis Orchid, Alpine Gypsophilia, Romance Bishops Weed, Easter Lilly, Agrapanthas, New Iris, Carthamus Spray, Freezia Spray, Singapore Orchid, 100 Cm Philianopsis Orchid, Lark Spur, Gerberal Natural in bouquet type division. Ficus Tree, Jap Maple, Mini Jap Maple, Bamboo Tree, Assrt Bamboo Tree, Assrt Bamboo, Erica Palm Tree, New Ficus, Capensia, Mini Ficus, Rucus Tree, Saki Tree, Bosten Fern, Mini Japanese Maple were some plant type flowers displayed. Overall 120 varieties of flowers and 35 varieties of plants were on display. The size of plants varied from 1.5 feet to 8 feet. The price ranged from Rs. 20 to Rs. 250 for flowers and Rs. 100 to 10,000 for plants.

A colourful display"The objective behind organising this kind of expo is to create awareness about the availability of high quality imported varieties among the people of twin cities," said Shankar. "Today's indoor climate does not always allow the healthy growth of real tropical plants. There are many places in our homes or offices that need the aesthetic effect of greenery, but lack the necessary lighting and humidity to support live plants. Silk plants and flowers add a warm and comfortable atmosphere to any area of your home or office. People feel relaxed in this artificial setting of plants and flowers that are so real in looking. Moreover, these flowers are easy to care for," Shankar added when asked about the importance of Silk flowers.
