I swear I looked at that and immediately thought 'melted lime sherbet.'
Wow! Amazing plant. I've never seen anything like it.
Thanks Hetty!

Or a closeup of upturned bottle caps. I had to look it up to see that it was a real flower. Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks, all. Smiling This picture was taken in the Brazilian Garden section of the Naples Botanical Garden. The leaves can get up to 6 ft across in the wild but we've had 3 footers. They are not easy to grow here because they really do not like to get cold at all. You may notice that the underside and edge of the leaves are severely barbed. They are so fascinating and the blooms are great too. I thought I had a picture of one somewhere... will keep looking.

Here is an article about them.
