A Flower a Week #2 : Bat Plant

Batplant

Bat Plant

This week I have chosen to show you this spectacular Bat Plant. It is one of the most unusual  flowers in my garden and flowers during the hot tropical summer months, but as I won’t be home when it is flowering I am showing you one from last season.

Tacca chantrieri

Common Names: Bat Flower, Black Bat Flower, Cats Whiskers, Devil Flower, Bat Head Lily, Bat Plant, Devil’s Tongue, Black Tacca, Jews Beard, Voodoo Flower.

****************

Nalinki on “Angles and views” is hosting a weekly series called: “Flowersoverflowers”, it will be posted every Tuesday. The idea is to bring some more colorful pics of nature into our blogosphere.

  6. The clarity of that photo is spectacular – the light on leaves and petals, and every “peculiarity” displayed to perfection. Why did you choose to call it bat plant from so many options??
