Colocasia 'Distant Memory' PP30292
Common Name: Elephant Ear
This tropical plant forms huge, dark glossy mahogany leaves. Compared to 'Black Swan', this variety is shorter and has a fuller habit. While growing this plant, you'll appreciate its clumping nature, which translates to more vigorously filling out a pot and throwing up lots of new leaves.
Elephant ears make a great focal point to any garden, patio, or container planting. They do an awesome job at creating that WOW factor from across the garden. Consistent moisture and regular fertilizing is key to achieving a specimen plant.
