Hello,

Can anyone tell me what the name of this plant is? I have searched all over the internet pictures but have come up with nothing.

Thanks

well if you are asking what real plant the artificial one is supposed to be, the closest thing I can think of is a pussy willow. They are often dried and used in crafts, flower arrangements ect, and sometimes dyed colors.

I couldn't upload a photo earlier, I cropped off the tag which has:

ITEM NO. LG 3997 COLOR SK5

Note the spelling of 'color' which is American. Here's it's 'colour'.

well OP is from Germany

I thought he was asking what kind of plant it is? It IS plastic, but artificial plants almost always are created/patterned after it's real counterpart. I thought he was asking what kind of plant it would be if it were real. A pussy willow is the closest thing I can think of.

I think you're right, Frilly. We're just messin' with him - maybe he was messin' with us too??

Posting a picture of a fake flower and asking for a plant ID on a gardening forum - really??

well I know I have been at Hobby Lobby before and seen artificial flowers that I thought looked really neat, but I had no idea what they were supposed to be. He probably ran across this site through a search. He doesn't realize how obsessed we are here Whistling

And he IS a New Member! Welcome!

I agree, it looks like a photo of Salix (Pussy Willow):


Apparently there are pink varieties:
