This ornamental flowering plant is among the showiest of the Tacca chantrieri  plant family (part of the yam family).  Common names are Black Bat Flower, Bat Head Lily, Devil Flower, Cat’s Whiskers and Tacca chantrieni.

Originally the Black Bat flower plant grew and still does grow wild in the tropical forests of Yunnan Province, in South China. Even prior to blooming, it resembles sleeping bats hanging downward from their roost.

Vetches and passion flowers have modified some of their leaves and converted them into tendrils. These grope around in space until they touch the stem of another plant and swiftly coil around it. The tendrils then coil and pull the plant up towards the sunlight.

This is Eranthis hyemalis - in my garden, near Copenhagen

In Denmark and the UK, Eranthis hyemalis (or “Winter Aconite”)begins to emerge as early as January.
Eranthis are native to Southern Europe, Asia, and Japan, and naturalised throughout Europe, due to their popularity as an ornamental plant. They are a herbaceous perennial in the Ranununculaceae (Buttercup) family.
They can survive, unscathed, from complete snow cover. The plants last 2-3 months, and then proceed to die down. Eranthis grow from small tubers that multiply under the soil, or, from seed. A seeded plant takes roughly three years before it flowers.
