We have a vast array of ferns with different styles and fabrics. While we do have 2 different 28" ferns, this one is a leather fern bush made of plastic, while the latter choice is made of polyester. Each designer has their favorites, so it's a matter of preference. We as professional decorators do utilize the plastic fern for outdoor weddings if there is a chance of rain, or if you want to float them in a pool. You'll also notice that each style of fern has different minimums, pricing and sizes. You're sure to find something at Designs by Lisa to cater to your design needs.
