Faux Herb Plants for Kitchen Windowsill

Faux herb plants, which are also known as silk herbs and artificial herbs, are an excellent decoration for the kitchen windowsill. Not only do they provide a touch of homeyness and colour to your kitchen, they also do not require any care after installation. There are many different options when you want to decorate your kitchen's windowsill with faux herbs.


Faux mint comes in sprays, with perfect stalks in a variety of duller greens. Faux mint is a good choice when you want to keep the colour palate of your kitchen limited, as it does not overwhelm the area with colour. Because of the spindly nature of the mint plant itself, consider grouping the false mint thickly to get a profusion of greenery on your windowsill.


Lavender is used in both French and English cooking, and is also a very beautiful decorative plant. Faux lavender uses a dull grey-green foliage to bring out the pale purple flowers. The flower stalks are long and graceful, and they provide an excellent soft purple accent. If you place the lavender in pots, adorn the pots with a pale purple ribbon tied in a bow.


Use faux rosemary in a kitchen with dramatic colouration. A healthy rosemary bush is an evergreen, and a faux rosemary bush has deep green spiked leaves. The faux rosemary is a thick bush of firm, thin upright stalks. It is an ideal choice for a tall, narrow window that needs a similarly tall and narrow plant.


If you are interested in a faux herb that is more leafy, with dense foliage, consider using sage. Faux sage has a mounded appearance with long, broad oval leaves. These leaves create a denser look. Faux sage is a good choice for small individual pots, and a set of three pots with faux sage plants in each creates a united, organised look across your kitchen windowsill.


Faux oregano is a short herb with pleasant, spade-shaped leaves. While it is short, it is also dense, and it is a good choice when you'd like to install a long, narrow planter across your kitchen windowsill. The low profile of the herb gives you more clear space in the window.
