A small clump of large, bushy plants growing along both sides of the Yellow Brick Road in the Munchkin Country. They grab unsuspecting travelers and fold them deep into the recesses of their bushy leaves. Singing or whistling makes them behave if you want to walk by them and not get grabbed. The Shaggy Man knows this trick and uses it to free Ojo, Scraps, the Woozy, and the Glass Cat when they are caught by the plants. The leaves of the plants are basically blue, but have blotches and stripes of many different colors which are constantly changing. This is beautiful to behold and entices the unsuspecting traveler to come within grabbing range.
