Weird Plant

I have no idea what this is. I took the picture last Sunday and there were two of these plants with no identification of them nearby in the Garden. While the head reminds me of an avocado, these plants were over 4 feet tall and that yellow part up top is around 2 feet in height. Those bloody plants are HUGE!

Does anyone know what they are?

Looks a lot like an artickoke. All I can think of is Little Shop of Horrors tho.

You're right, Chad. It does look like that plant from the movie. Now it kinda scares me!

Have you seen Jumanji? It looks like the giant plant from the movie...the one that ate things, LOL. When it opens up, is there a pink inside? RUN!!!! LOL.

No, but they are COOL!!!

When I was trying to figure out what a tree was (I posted it after our trip to Florida) I went to a message board for the National Arbor Day Foundation and got the answer. You just post a photo, and SOMEONE knows!

Good luck! And thanks for stopping by...

When a plant is that big, I guess you just call it 'Sir'!!

Hi, Michele sent me again. That plant looks prehistoric. Beautiful really, but sounds big enough to eat a small pet.

I'd guess some kind of yucca but I bet Naomi (OOLOTH) knows. She's an expert on weird succulents.

It's awfully pretty tho, isn't it?

I have no idea what it is either, but I'm also reminded of an artichoke. Beautiful picture, though! Michele sent me today

Reminds me of a ginger plant, something tropical.

I just read where Margalit thought I might know what it is, but of course I don't. DRAT! It is fascinating though how BIG it is and I hope you get back there when it is open all the way...there may be a surprise flower something inside this Artchoke Looking person...Sorry I am of no help here...
