Plants for sale are between 5-16" they grow fast. genus Tacca consists of long-lived, short stemmed, rhizomatous or tuberous herbaceous plants. All but one species occur in Asia. Four species of Asian Tacca have attractive, entire leaves, vertical growth habit, and strange whisker-like (filiform) bracts below the flowers that can hang down for as much as 1 foot in length. It is these structures and their accompanying cluster of luridly colored flowers that has given rise to the sobriquet "batflower" for these marvelous tropical plants. Cloaking the flowers from above are several broad and showy bracts, expanding like bat wings. Tacca chantrieri was the first of these species to make a splash in the horticultural world. In this species not only are the flowers and filiform bracts dark maroon, but so are the broad bracts that rise up above and behind the flowers. Ships to the continental United States only.
