This is a shot from the Shining (1980). Is it a carnation? Some kind of rose maybe? I know it's hard to see but that's the best screengrab I could get. Believe it or not, this is very important to me so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You!

My guess would be that it is a rose.

The flower shape says daffodils. It would be easy to change the color in post editing. Yellow would have been very distracting.

The flower at the upper left, pointing at 10 o'clock is distinct, in my opinion. The arrows below at least look like they could be three of the five daffodil petals, and the circle around the point where they converge is telling as the daffodil corona.

Or it could be the figment of someone's imagination (fake).

Most likely some set designers' imagination, as it takes a long time to get some of those shots for a movie, and silk flowers would make the most sense. Those are NOT daffodil leaves.

The leaves are what made me think it was supposed to be a rose.

You could be right (Carol and Daisy), though I am not sure what the resolution might be on your screen. However, it would be SILLY (in your own speaking tone) to include daffodil leaves in any florist arrangement, as they quickly bruise, are easily damaged, and will not retain their orientation in a vase. I worked in a greenhouse where we grew daffs for the florist shops, and we never shipped the leaves with the daff flowers for exactly these reasons.


Very sorry to have ruffled feathers.

Leftwood, I don't think you did any feather ruffling.

Thanks for all of the responses. You're right, it probably is artificial.
