Fiddleneck (Amsinckia spp.) is a genus of flowering plants in the borage family (Boraginaceae). It includes several species commonly known as fiddleneck due to the distinctive shape of their flower clusters.
Fiddleneck flowers are small, tubular, and trumpet-shaped. The flower clusters typically coil or bend, resembling the neck of a violin or fiddle, hence the common name "fiddleneck." The flowers can vary in color, ranging from shades of yellow and orange to reddish-brown.
