(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 Devils Whiskers.

We offer the rhizomes bare root ready to be planted.

These plants prefer shade or partial shade where it is warm and humid. They should be planted in a mix of equal parts sand, loam and humus rich garden compost. Keep the soil moist during the growing and flowering time
