Perry is opening up today!!!! Yay! You have to admit that is one good looking plant! The fine folks on the website say:
"It has been stated by an alarmingly large number of people that parts of Perry’s spathe look like lettuce. We have therefore decided to prohibit visitors from bringing bread, mayonnaise, or salad spinners into the Perry Room. Rabbits are also Lepus non grata."
Check out Perry and his live feed at the Gustavus site. Did you know that Perry is 14 years old this year? It's worth the time to see one of the world's most unusual plants. Scroll down for Perry and the two others that are also opening almost simultaneously.
