Colocasia gigantea 'Thailand Giant'
Common Name: Giant Elephant Ear
To say that this plant will dwarf any plant you already own would be putting it mildly! ‘Thailand Giant’ is much larger than C. gigantea. Its glaucous green leaves can measure a whopping 5' long x 4' wide each. Fully grown plants typically reach 9ft tall, In tropical climates have reportedly reached 20' where they are planted into the ground.
Thanks to Petra Schmidt of Plant Delights Nursery, who collected seed growing in the wild in Thailand, we can all enjoy this seedling selection.
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.
