Holy Bat Plant!

bat plant
The environmental horticulture student club is selling bat plants as a Halloween fundraiser. How could I resist this crazy looking plant? For one, it has the oddball look that I love. And two, it has one of favorite color combos--purple and green.

The club advisor says they'll work well as a house plant. I'm hoping to plant mine outside in a new bed I'm laying out. I figure if I baby it then maybe it will make it through the North Florida winters. I'll be sure to take post pictures once my own bat plant arrives.
Eucomis comosa 'Oakhurst'
I'm also in love with this pineapple lily (Eucomis comosa 'Oakhurst') that was featured in the National Gardening Association's regional gardening news email update. For more information, visit the Terra Nova Nurseries site.

I have never seen such a plant. That is so cool lookin'! This is what I love visiting blogs from other parts of the country. I discovered plants I didn't even know existed. BTW, thanks for the visit to my blog.

Have a wonderful holiday season.
