Colocasia Esculenta

Colocasia esculenta, commonly known as elephant ear, is a versatile and visually striking plant that can be cultivated for both culinary and decorative purposes. As a decorative plant, Colocasia esculenta is prized for its large, heart-shaped leaves that resemble the ears of an elephant, hence the name “elephant ear.” The foliage is often lush green, but there are cultivars with variations in colour, including deep purples and variegated patterns.

This tropical plant adds a touch of exotic elegance to gardens, landscapes, and indoor spaces. Its bold and dramatic foliage creates a focal point, making it an excellent choice for enhancing the aesthetics of gardens, patios, or interior spaces. Colocasia esculenta is particularly popular in tropical and subtropical regions, where it thrives in moist, well-drained soil and partial shade.

In colder regions, overwinter as a houseplant or lift tubers and store in a frost-free area.
