Alocasia gageana is a smaller version of both Alocasia odora and Alocasia macrorrhizos that hails from Myanmar (Burma). For us, Alocasia gageana forms a fast-offsetting 4' tall plant that dies to the ground each winter, but in more tropical climates forms a thick above-ground trunk, which supports the upright held 2' long, scalloped-edged leaves. Slightly moist, but well drained soils and part sun seems to grow the best plants. Although most sites claim Alocasia gageana 'California' to only be hardy to Zone 10, our plants have been in the ground since 2001, and have endured low temperatures of 7 degrees F with no protection. In cold winter climates, however, plants will not return above ground until at least late June.
