Colocasia Mojito Bulb | Variegated Elephant Ear
Colocasia Mojito's wide chartreuse green leaves are generously spattered with irregular purple splashes and splotches, endearing this dramatic elephant ear to garden designers. Mix it with purple foliage plants for a container medley that delivers high contrast appeal. (Oxalis triangularis is a perfect partner. For more color, use alstroemeria in sunny spots, and achimenes or tuberous begonias in the shade) Mojito matures to 3 feet, just the right height for use in a oversized container that creates its own little tropical oasis, wherever you choose to place it. This elephant ear cultivar is happy and colorfast in full sun to medium shade locations. Enjoy!
