A Strange Flower

While browsing Home Depot I spotted this:
 A very large plant, 2x3 feet maybe.  Wouldn't these be something in a big arrangement?
 It is Tacca chantrieri 'Black Bat Plant' a Bat Plant. Tricky to grow as it is from the tropics.
Take a look at Today's Flowers # 230 for more interesting floral sights.


  1. Hi Pat, thanks very much for sharing this very interesting plant today. I have never seen anything like it or heard of it before. It looks very exotic. You have my curiosity peaked, I'm going to take a look on line to see if I can find out where it originated. Have a great week :)

  2. That's quite an interesting looking plant. I wonder where it actually grows....


I love hearing from you. Don't be shy!
