    I would need to see more of the plant they are on.

    Hello. For plant identification it may be necessary to see more of the plant to include the leaf structure and branch formation. Additionally for the best local professional advice

    I would highly suggest contacting your cooperative extension. These offices are manned by volunteer master gardeners on site there waiting to answer the communities questions that know your local situation quite well.

    Master gardeners are required to volunteer back designated hours ( plus continuing education) each year to maintain MG certification -this community outreach and education is their goal.


    If your office is closed....there might be alternative online venues like Ask an Expert as well as emailing your local master gardeners extension office for their

    guidance.... in a non contact manner.

      Oh that’s valuable information perhaps someone in the floral industry here might be able to offer the solution.


      Master gardener volunteer at the local extension often ID leaf structure veining edge smoothness or teeth as well as how many leaves are sprouting off the branch to help identify local plants.


      Being in the floral industry this could be an imported item. I hope you find the answer good luck.

    I am wondering if it might be delphinium, commonly known as larkspur ?

    From your description, it is an arrangement, so there might be a chance that those seeds may not belong to that plant. Most commonly, cats are interested in plants and chew on them, making plant identification easier, plus there is information all over the web for plants that are toxic to cats, not so much for seeds, which makes identifying these seeds difficult. Maybe the vet could figure out what seeds the cat ate.

    Thinking further, maybe contact the florist where the arrangement came from, they might know what it is.

      No available vets, the arrangement came from Trader Joe's, not a florist, that's why I posted here, just wanted to check and see if anyone might have some sort of clue.

      Thank you

    Try the app Plant Snap or show the picture to someone who works at a nursery or in the gardening section.

    You could try using the app called PlantSnap and see if it can identify it for you.
