The Flora colossi (singular Flora colossus) are an alien species of tree-like humanoids from Planet X of the Marvel universe.


Despite being plants, as they can regenerate from cuttings, like plants, they're mentioned to have larynx, like animals. Speaking of which, the stiffness of said larynx causes them to sound like they are repeating the phrase "I am Groot".
