Okay, I will allow you to laugh. This is a silly question. You will find a picture of my fake plant. I really like it a lot, but I think it would be more fun to GROW the REAL thing. Anyone have any ideas on what this might be? It's peach colored, but it may not necessarily occur that way in nature! LOL - help me out here, gang!

Kind of looks like a verbena flower stuck onto something else for the leaves!

How about one of the pastel yarrows (Achillea)? The leaves would be ferny, but the flowers would be right.

I was kinda scared what I might see when I opened the page!!!!! LOL!!! I'd go for verbena or hydrangea, depending on size and can you get that color in each?

You can get a peach Verbena xhybrida 'Peaches and Cream' and Achillea 'Lachsschonheit' (syn Salmon Beauty) but I've never seen nor heard of a peach Hydrangea, however there is a Hydrangea paniculata 'Pink Diamond' which begins white and changes to deep pink with age, the inbetween stage can look a little peachy but you need to stretch the imagination for that a bit.

Why bother with a real one? Just buy some more fakes and poke them in amongst your other plants. You'll have blooms all year long!

P.S. (My mother-in-law does this! Honest!!)

LOL, you guys tickle me! The flowers do kinda look like yarrow, but they're not flat on top like yarrow. And it is kinda like hydrangea. It's like a Frankenstein's Monster, a bit of everything! Crazy, isn't it? :o)
