The plants in my garden are starting to mature now. Any day now. :wink:

Think I'll make some brownies or something...

What's the name of this beauty?
It's growing since 4 years on a shady place on our patio, easy-care.
Maybe Thais named it "Elephant Ears", but I'm not sure.
Any ideas? Thanks

Maybe a Bird of Paradise plant? I'm definitely no expert but it does look similar:

Thanks lomuamart, the Bird of Paradise has blossoms which my plant not have and she grows only in South Africa.
The small red parts you see in my picture are quivers/etui for new leaves, she comes regularly into leaf.

I have 4 of the same plant. Neither Elephant Ear or BoP, I have two types of BoP and nothing like this. BoP has long slender leaves.
Elephant Ear is like the following

Could it be the Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum sp)

By the way this is a good site for identifying plants

Thanks StevePIraq, so I can exclude Elephant Ear and Lily's as well :(
