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

of the Casa Rosada. (He may have an obsessive compulsive floral disorder.) To read the transcript of an
