    Detailed Description

    Most varieties of elephant ears have foliage that angle downward, so the leaf surface faces the viewer. Thick Upright Elephant Ears stretch skywards in a form that looks like it came straight out of a tropical jungle. These plants draw the eye vertically, expanding the landscapes dimensions dramatically. Giant Upright Elephant Ears are thick, leathery, huge and spectacular. If stopping foot traffic around your home or office building sounds like fun to you, plant a trio of these and then wait in the wings for pedestrians reactions.
