Alocasia Tiny Dancers

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Alocasia Tiny Dancers is an unusual aroid that only grows about 14" tall with bright green stems and leaves that have a slightly cupped form. Its growth habit, however, gives the appearance of a full bushy plant as the stems emerge at different times, giving it a tiered effect. One of the best houseplants for its ease of care. Keep it moist, go light on the fertilizer and grow in a partially sunlit window if it is an indoor houseplant. It also makes an ideal plant for an outdoor patio due to its unique form.

This Black colocasia is a must for black plant fanatics. It has large matte black, heart shaped leaves on black/purple leaf stalks. As with most elephant ears, moist soil and high nutrition are the keys to great specimens. In shade leaves turn dark green. Once moved to bright sun, they turn back to black. In cooler subtropical climates leaves die back and the plant emerges from a rhizome in spring.

Colocasia esculenta Jacks Giant

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticUnusual colorOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

This astonishing elephant ear is well-named, it really does look like something that would grow for the giant! The foliage is absolutely massive, many feet long and wide, with a glossy texture, prominent ribbing, and a rich blue-green cast that lightens to chartreuse around the edges. Jack's Giant is a triploid, meaning it has three times the chromosomal power of most other elephant ears. And you will see the power in your garden!
Jack's Giant is native to East Asia and India, and certainly lends a big splash of tropical flair to any garden setting. Reaching at least 7 feet tall and 5 to 8 feet wide, it thrives in moist to boggy or even wet soils, preferring those that are well enriched with organic matter. In wintertime, however, it needs much drier conditions to keep from rotting. Good drainage and consistent moisture is the solution, with a siting in sun to light shade.
Find a position of prominence for this extraordinary plant. It could easily become the focal point of the patio or deck, or join taller shrubs and trees around the perimeter of the property. As a specimen it is unforgettable, yet it is quite easy to grow and needs no maintenance.

Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticUnusual colorOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Very popular collectible hybrid, this is one plant that truly lives up to its cool name! Purple and green camouflaged leaves with a lime green stem. Each leaf of this Elephant Ear is like an artists canvas, no two are exactly alike. Splashed, splattered, sprayed, marbled, splotched - take your pick of adjectives to describe the unique pattern of lime green, chartreuse, purple, and near-black colors on each huge, arrow shaped leaf. Even its stout stems are colorful: light pink with dark rattlesnake-like stripes. The colors tend to be most vivid when sited in partial shade.
This plant will grow well in large containers or in the ground as long as consistent moisture is available. In the ground, the leaves can grow a whopping 2ft long by 18in wide and the plant can reach 6ft tall. This plant will also grow in shallow water.

Colocasia esculenta Nancys Revenge (Nancyana)

Click to see full-size image

Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticUnusual colorOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Introduced at the 2000 International Aroid Society meeting in Florida, this dazzling elephant ear became the most wanted plant at the meeting. Emerging solid green, the 25" wide light green leaves begin turning butter cream-yellow along the center. The color then pours down into the main vein creating a huge bold Y-pattern in the center of the leaf. Color then bursts into the lateral (side) veins and begins its march to the margins. Coloring starts in spring, shortly after the first leaves mature. It sends out lots of side stolons which will root into the soil where moisture is adequate. The more moisture the larger the plant will grow.

Pharaoh Mask has bright green leaves that are accentuated by bulging purple veins, creating an unusual 3D effect that is impossible to ignore. At maturity, the leaf edges curve under, showing off the purple veins even more. Strong, dark stems, the same color of the veins, support individual leaves like masquerade masks. A nice cluster of them make for a big impact with the stripped foliage and dark stems that is unlike any elephant ear on the market.

Colocasia Thailand Giant - Taro Root

Click to see full-size image

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticRegular waterOrnamental foliageFlood tolerant

Taro is native to South India and Southeast Asia. It is primarily grown as a root vegetable for its edible starchy corm, and as a leaf vegetable. It is a food staple in African, Oceanic and South Indian cultures and is believed to have been one of the earliest cultivated plants. It is known by many local names and often referred to as "elephant ears" when grown as an ornamental plant.
The corms, which have a light purple color due to phenolic pigments, are roasted, baked or boiled, and the natural sugars give a sweet nutty flavor. The starch is easily digestible, and since the grains are fine and small it is often used for baby food. The leaves are a good source of vitamins A and C and contain more protein than the corms.

Drosera spathulata - Sundew

Click to see full-size image

Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

The common name of this carnivorous plant - Sundew - derived from the mucilage that adorns each gland on the leaves of all plants glistening in the sunlight, reminiscent of spring sunshine on early morning dew. Although the common name seems almost delightful, this hides a morbid side to the plants, or more specifically, their prey capture method.
Drosera spatulata is known as the spoon-leaved sundew because of its wee spoon-shaped leaves. The Latin name literally translates to spatula shaped. The plant is spread through Southeast Asia, Southern Japan and China, New Guinea, Micronesia, and into eastern territories in New Zealand, Tasmania, and Australia.

Xanthosoma albo-marginata - Mickey Mouse Taro

Click to see full-size image

Semi-shade

Mickey Mouse Taro, Mighty Mouse. This curious variety of elephant ear is a must for every rare plant collection. Unusually variegated Aroid, it has irregularly margined leaves which when first opening, its edges are a cream yellow, later turning white, and often swirled. A show stopper! This plant is thought to be a mutation of a species. Most think it is a form of atrovirens or even a possible hybrid. The leaves are never identical most are streaked with large blotches of white on dark blue green leaves. One of the most odd features of the plant is the fact that most leaves will develop a small cup like pocket at the leaf tip and sometimes a small string like structure will form. Plants usually grow with leaves held horizontally. It is always a conversation piece in the garden. Mighty Mouse can reach 3-4 ft at full maturity making it a wonderful addition to your jungle. Plants produce tubers and can be wintered in either in a greenhouse or cool storage.
