Alocasia/Colocasia (Elephant Ears)


Elephant Ears are a must-have in every Summer garden. With their large heart-shaped leaves, they give every yard a “WOW!” factor. These easy to care for tropical beauties will be sure to set your garden apart from the rest. They are available with foliage in green, purple, black and even variegated with white!

Elephant Ears, also known as Colocasias and Alocasias, are well known for providing much needed shade from the sun to their neighboring lower foliage and flower friends. Having some of the largest leaves known to man sure makes for great shade!

These tropical tubers thrive best in Zones 9-11. In colder climates, they can be placed in large containers and kept in an area with protection from the cold.
