I love these plant holders. These beautiful stands have a small shelf built into the top to securely hold a plant to add to its overall look without having to purchase a really tall plant or Jerry rig something yourself for the inside. These plant stand are four feet tall and look amazing in the inside corners of our outside porch gazebo tent. The height of these stands allows me to use long cascading style flower plants for a relaxing and gorgeous setup, when I can keep them alive. They are very durable and have held up well to the outdoor elements. No molding, fading or fraying. We are military so something that can withstand multiple environments is ideal for us since we never know where we will be a few years down the road. These have also held up very well in the two moves they have endured so far. We have two little kids and these are heavy enough to stay in place without fear of them falling over on one of them if knocked into while playing outside.
