Notes:

Many of these are popping up around my yard. They have a very large white root. Grow very rapidly. Would like to know what they are, and where they are from. Thanks. Jim

    Yes, thanks. It is indeed an elephant foot yam, after looking it up in a plant encyclopedia. You were exactly right. Appreciate your help. Jim

    Large root? Or bulb? How large is that gorgeous plant? I think it looks a lot like the elephant yam (amorphophallus paeoniifolius) that the person from the Phillipines recently posted…. http://www.walterreeves.com/name-that-plant/weird-plant-2/ Search “amorphallus” it’s a fairly extensive family of plants.
