Itzah C. Kret is also known as The Phantom Planter because he goes around planting
flowers in public places. Since 1979 he guesses he's planted over 41,317 flowers in
ten states and six foreign countries including India, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica and
Argentina. In the Spring of 2009 he breached the Israeli Embassy security barriers
to plant caladium bulbs (not bombs, bulbs) which made the Washington Post in the fall
when they bloomed. In 2005, he planted over 20,000 morning glories in Bangalore,
India. In October, 2003, he planted 202 tulips, crocuses and windflowers right under the St.
Louis Gateway Arch. On April 12, 2004, he struck in Buenos Aires, Argentina, planting dozens
of Morning Glories in La Boca and in the park in front of the Casa Rosada. (He may have an
obsessive compulsive floral disorder.) To read the transcript of an NPR interview of
