Yes, Betty Korn is correct. I did some research and found this and the link
if anyone is interested www.easyorchids.co.uk/.../Tacca-chantieri-Black-Beauty-BAT...

Beauty', Bat Plant
Tacca chantieri 'Black Beauty', Bat Plant

These fantastic tropical plants are not orchids The plants like heat and humidity (like Vanda and Phalaenopsis) and stand approximately 28 inches high! The flowers are deepest purple and are almost black and 8 inches across with 10 inch whiskers dangling down super warm conservatory plants.

My first reaction was that it looks like a wet, angry cat! Good luck with identification! ;)

My question is do you have any seeds it is beautiful and what area or zone do you live in? I would love one of those. Is it easy to grow?

Wow Caralee! That is a beauty! I think it is a "Bat" plant. It looks like the one in my "Burgess seed & plant" catalog.
