I wish all the leaf eating bugs and slugs would take stock of this and imitate.

Just realised you're from Florida - that's why you can grow this nice tropical looking stuff!

Hi Gillian,

Yeah, I think it is considered sub-tropical here as we still get freezes every so often. I'm working on planting my own garden around tropicals and shade plants, since I have a lot of shade. This was a plant in a public garden. I'm trying to get some ideas of what to plant, so I've been visiting gardens around the state for a while now... I like your paintings by the way, especially the white kitty one. :)

Gardengem,

This plant is Monstera friedrichsthalii (Swiss Cheese Plant) it is a tropical plant. I have seen this planted around here, however, it is not as common as Monstera deliciosa (Split leaf Philodendron).

Mmm...sounds good enough to eat...:) It is an unusual plant. The leaves were huge! Is this common name swiss cheese, or is it just what it looks like?

The common name is: Swiss Cheese Plant...and I'm assuming it's because the leaves have holes like Swiss cheese.
