I love my garden - hardly any flowers - lots of trees and bushes - and tropical plants in pots. Lots of wildlife around 32 different species of birds.

The plant produces a cylindrical rhizome of this plant grows vertically and the crown of large, attractive leaves emerge from the top of the rhizome. The leaves are lance-shaped with large blades up to 60cm (24 inch) long sustained on a petiole up to 40cm (15 inch) long. The BAT PLANT (Tacca chantrieri) produces the most unusual and striking flowers. The Black Bat flowers are somewhat bat-shaped, are up to 32 cm (12 inches) across, and have long 'whiskers' that can grow up to 70 cm (28 inches).
