…Most Unusual Flowering Plant Of All…
GIANT WHITE BAT PLANT
(1mAD) Known also as the White Bat Plant but often have shades of Purple!! Tacca integrifolia is probably the most unusual flowering plant of all!! Its total weird flower arrangement is about one metre from top to bottom, on a spike, also one metre long. Its top bracts consist of two spectacular dorsals usually white and purple stripes and each one about 200mm wide. The true flowers (below dorsals.. centre) are like thick purple buttons and then there are huge purple whiskers which hang from the flowers to about 600mm below. Spectacular is not the word for this one!! Occasionally there is a variation and the bracts are purple or pure white and very occasionally the whiskers can be white. The Giant Bat Plant has big broad broad glossy leaves 350mm across and 750mm long. These are big plants 400mm tall in larger 130mm pots.
