Colocasia esculenta Mojito

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

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 White Lava

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

Large glossy green leaves are adorned with a wide band of creamy white down the center of each leaf. Veins are bright purple. There is also a distinct purple spot in the heart of each leaf. Perfect for large containers, garden borders, or mass landscape plantings. The large, glossy green leaves develop a striking creamy-white band down the center of each leaf that radiates out into the side veins as the leaf matures creating a stunning specimen that is attractive and eye-catching. This new colocasia is a tightly clumping plant that’s ideal for a container or garden bed.
Young plants come as green leaf, then start showing "white lava flow" as they develop.

Colocasia Red-Eyed Gecko

Click to see full-size image

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

Red-Eyed Gecko is the third to be introduced into this series with it’s chartreuse foliage and deep red eye - like the eye of a Gecko. Bright and sunny, with strong lime green stems, it is a funky Colocasia, very vigorous with colorful stems, and superior foliage in magnificent shades on plants that are just the right size - from 4 to 6 feet tall.
Plant a Gecko in your garden or in a pot for instant color and a superior tropical effect. Keep this one out of hot afternoon sun and you will have a bright, happy beauty all summer long. This is a great plant for contrasting with darker foliage plants and should contrast well with other Colocasias.

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.
