Spray-painted plants

Couldn't believe this when I saw these the other day image


There was this explanation though image

    Very curious wakeshine. Why do they bother I ask myself? image I saw some alarmingly coloured heathers the other day- oranges and blues and fluorescent greens to name but a few of the colours. I prefer the natural look.

    I thought the dip-dyed heathers were as low as we could go but these are worseimage

  • Not sure why this post has repeated as I only posted it once. I just can't even follow why anyone would think of dyeing a plant!

    You would think the paint would stop the plants photosynthesisiising. Very weird that anyone would do this.

    No accounting for taste eh? On a par with blue heathers or "ornamental cabbage" image

    and don't start on the plastic box balls either....image

    The spray painted heathers have been around for a while - I have no idea why. Who buys these things? 

    Surely it would stop if there was no demand? 

    Is it for all the people who want a garden but can't be a**ed actually doing anything? image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Hopefully it won't catch on and they will stop making these
