Anyone know what this plant is? Found in Live Oak, TX
Cotton candy fern or green fantasy fern?
I believe this is Arisarum simmorhinum
Native to Portugal, Spain, Baleares, Morocco and Algeria.
Unfortunately, there's not a lot of documentation on this species - the only common name I could find was "Friar's Cowl" in English, so I'm not aware of it's local name(s) in Morocco.
This plant is sometimes treated as a subspecies of Arisarum vulgare. That species can be differentiated by their longer, thinner spadices that extend put of the flower and bend downwards. A. vulgare often tends to have lighter/greener spathes and more prominent striping.
Thank you very much.
Nature is a mysteriously beautiful thing.
