I’m pretty sure that the emerging flowers of the very hardy windmill palm, Trachycarpus Fortunei were the inspiration for the pods in “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”. Here’s a shot from last year when the flowers were more open.
I did go back to this plant (gunnera) from the first of the month and crawled under to show the flowers, you can’t really tell that they are between 1 and 3 feet long. The perfect ground cover, one plant and your yard is full.
