HAWAIIAN SERIES COLOCASIA
(Elephant Ear) When Dr. John Hoy of Hawaii put took a break from his hybridizing of the edible form of Colocasia (Taro), trying his hand at the ornamental forms, his expertise resulted in the most exciting series of these magnificent foliage plants whose lush tropical foliage lends drama to any container and makes a great contrasting backdrop for other containers. All they ask is warm weather, plenty of moisture and fertile soil. Their foliage looks best in a full sun position but they'll take a little shade as well. Bring them indoors when the weather gets cool and grow them through the winter in a sunny window. wE ship them to you as vigorous, young, growing plants in 6.4cm (2.5") pots.
