Tacca chanterii
(Black Bat Flower). The rather weird looking 12 - 15 cm inflorescence arises during summer from a rhizome bearing 3 to 4 shiny, ribbed, green leaves that are very ornamental. The plant grows to a height of about 50 cm tall. In colder climates they make excellent pot plants if planted indoors in well-drained loam. The long lasting inflorescence are also good as cutflowers. Taccas are often referred to as Bat Flowers or Devil’s Whiskers.
