Hello all, anyone any idea as to what plant this weird thing is please?
It grew like wildfire out of a pot in my yard this Spring like a huge mottled spike. It almost reminded me of reptile skin. These weird leaves unfurled from the spike and it now has what looks like the start of a huge flower, another foot long spike with a purpley, frilly edge along the length. It looks set to unfurl anytime but conitnues to grow.
I've never seen anything like it and have no idea where it's come from. The excitement of what this flower is going to look like is killing me!
If someone can ID this I would be very grateful. The plant is currently about 2-3 feet in height.
