I was at Delos Eyer's fiftieth birthday party with Leslie the other evening and espied this trippy plant popping up in Peggy and Brad's garden. They thought it might be a banana flower but it was growing right out of crown of the fat grizzled trunk, which seems a bit odd to me. I worked on a banana farm in Israel for a spell and don't remember anything like this. Anybody know? Very pretty. About 20" wide.
