Big woody weird fungus. Been around for a while, slowly getting taller. Looked like a coconut poking out of the soil at first. Near an oak tree, a pittosporum, and a few other ornamental bush things.

Variety "Colored Willow Leaf." There are a few "willow leaf" types of Limas, named for their unusual narrow leaves. This variety is a mix of about six colors/patterns. Smaller seeds but prolific, attractive to hummingbirds, and really very tasty. Converted a couple of Lima-haters.
