Hmmm, Did a bit of research:
"Triffids are the only known plant capable of ambulatory movement. They can lift themselves about 30cm/1 foot off of the ground on the three projections on their boles. They walk rather like a man on crutches, sliding two projections forward and then lurching so that the third comes level with them. At each 'step', the stem whips violently back and forth and the leaves rustle noticeably. The speed is about that of average human walking pace."
Wouldn't want to see them surrounding people...
