The white bat flower has always intrigued me. It’s white petals are held up high like angel wings while its long whiskers cascade down toward the ground. This beauty doesn’t seem like it belongs here on earth. Its like one of the plants from a Jules Verne story decided that it couldn’t live in fiction anymore. It had to come to earth and enjoy the sunshine.

While out exploring tropical gardens, keep an eye out for this gem that likes to hid in the shadows.
