Welcome to the site!

Where are these flowers located?

Hi Ghostman7, Welcome!

The photo is quite out of focus for my old eyes but I think I see at least 4 different plants in the picture; the plant at top left with the blooms may be Pelargonium (Geranium), the plant pictured at top right with the grass like leaves may be some type of lily. The two plants in front I'm not sure about, they almost look plastic.

I'll move this over to the Plant Identification Forum where it will get more views and hopefully someone will be able to offer suggestions or point you in a particular direction but clearer photos would help.

They look artificial! Did you take the pictures yourself?

The color is almost unreal. Can we get a closer view?

The colour looks close to Camassia scilloides:

They look like faded plastic hyacinths to me. The green and the blue are washed out and they are improbably uniform in size and shape. IMO Shrug!
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

There's this one too, although other pictures of the cultivar don't show quite the same colour:

This is assuming the ID plant is actually real.

Hyacinths wouldn't be blooming at the same time as the geraniums and hanging petunias(?) in the background.

Thank you everyone! I haven't seen them yet in person though I do believe they are genuinely real. I will circle back once I see them in person! I appreciate all the knowledge and details thank you for your time and help!

I've never seen a stem of Camassia where the whole inflorescence is open at the same time. They open from lowest to highest and by the time the highest buds are open the lower half is pretty much shot and unattractive. I grow three or four shades of leichtlinii. C. quamash which is local here is the same way and they all go through blooms pretty fast. Wish they lasted longer. I agree with the "fake" theory but a close-up photo of the blooms would help. I can hardly tell (guess) the shape of the blooms.

Looking closely at the top picture, the front right lower "plants" seem to emanate from a single "stem". That really looks like they're artificial plants just stuck in the ground

If they were growing in a warmer climate and blooming in winter, Lachenalia viridiflora could be a possibility. However, the conditions are wrong for it to be that species and, really, the flowers in your photo look more like fake flowers.

I noticed that about the greenery too. I have to admit years ago I would put out fake flowers in the winter to bring myself some cheer. Back then they were all made of plastic, very fake looking.

Come to think of it, there is a home nearby that I pass on my daily walks that pretty much has a permanent fake garden along the front sidewalk. Today's "silk" blooms aren't that bad looking if I say so myself...

LOL, years ago my mom had neighbors that always had artificial flowers in the flower beds right by their front door, as well as in long flower bed beneath the windows along the front of their house. They would plant artificial yellow daffodils and bright red Tulips that all faded quickly in the intense Florida sun! On the 4th of July, it was red, white and blue and at Christmas time, it was artificial red Poinsettias.

In the 1970's my husband and I had an elderly couple in our neighborhood who at Easter time would decorate the agave and yucca plants in their yard by placing different sizes of colorful plastic eggs onto the sharp tips. Green Grin!

I once stuck some artificial roses I had been gifted into a rose bush conspicuously located in front of the house. It was months before anyone noticed.
