This is by far the coolest plant I have ever seen!
It can be planted outside, preferably in a pot so you can bring it indoors during the cold weather. It is from the same family as "Chick's and Hens's" which are another favorite of mine. I bought it at Home Depot for $9.95 which I didn't think was to bad for such a large, unusual plant. I can not take it outside yet, because today it snowed!! Yup May 8th and it snowed!!
