Black Bat Flower I am not sure whether it's the WHOLE flower that's the bat (it looks kind of bat-faced) or the middle part (pistil?) that also looks a bit like a tiny bat face. I love orchids; I love bats; and I love purple.
♥ flowers of a lovely blue. Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica) other common names Virginia cowslip, lungwort oysterleaf, Roanoke bells, this mid-spring flowering plant is native to moist woodland in eastern North America.
