Tacca integrifolia
Common Name: White Bat Plant Family: Taccaceae (The Bat Plant Family)

Tacca integrifolia
Zoom In Photo:

The most impressive of all the Taccas. This monster can reach a height of over 1.75 m tall. The white flower bracts with purple lines can measure 30 cm across. The most amazing part is the many whiskers which can be more than 1 m long. No wonder it's called the “Devil's Whiskers”. A “must have” for those who love the botanically intriguing and have a bit of space to overwinter indoors.
