I live in the United States. My friend was in England recently and
brought home seeds from a flower she called Whiskery Fluff, but they
did not sprout. Does anyone know the botanical name of this plant
because maybe I can find some seeds in the U.S? Thanks so much.
Did your friend declare those seeds when re-entering the U.S.? We
already have too many foreign plants that have become invasive pests.
On top of that, seeds can carry plant diseases that can devastate both
agriculture and home gardens.

I have no idea but they didn't sprout, and she is a pen pal who doesn't
live near me to be able to ask her, and it was a few years ago, but she
was just talking about it, and we were wondering what they were.
Unfortunately, common names like "whiskery fluff" are no way to
identify plants - it could just be a made-up name by the person
growing the plant because they don't know the scientific name or it
could just as well be a regional nickname. Whatever, nothing turns up
when searching under that name :-) A photo would certainly help but
barring that, just going by the visual that name suggests, it could be
some sort of clematis seedhead.
