White Bat Flower

A guaranteed conversation starter
This summer patio plant will stick out in your visitors minds—its flower form is unexpected and extraordinary. It's named for its bat-in-flight shape, but the deep purple and creme white tones, heavy veining and flowing lines almost look like something out of an art nouveau painting. Past the patio, this variety also makes an excellent indoor plant. In fact, it must be taken inside through winter in all but zone 10. Not only the habit, but its light requirements make it a good indoor plant. Because it's native to the deep understory of Asian rainforests, it prefers full shade or low light. No need for a big bay window or strategically placed artificial lights to keep it healthy in the home. It blooms August through September over lush, green crickled foliage that keeps up this tropical look through the season.
