    We have these in our yard from time to time. I looked it up and they are a type of fungus called Stinkhorn. Very creepy looking.

    Wow that's odd looking. I'm thinking maybe Douglas Hunt or Four Season Nursery & Landscaping might though.

    Smelly, and a fairly common sight in Florida. Also known, colorfully, as deadman's fingers. For a good discussion, see:

    I knew one of you would know. Thank you Douglas Hunt and Four Season for stopping in. Quite an amazing "thing". Hard to call it a plant.

    Sorry but this looks like poop to me. It was the first thing I thought about but obviously artistic poop ;-)

    I immediately thought it was something I would dry,and add some color to it and use as a substitute for a piece of coral in a "beachy" display ????????
