Our 2015 Plant Delights Nursery introduction is another in the line of giant forms of Leucocasia (formerly Colocasia) gigantea, this seed strain from a 2011 Alan Galloway collection from Laos. Leucocasia gigantea 'Laosy Giant' forms giant upright leaves that are one third larger than Leucocasia gigantea 'Thailand Giant', although the overall clump size is about the same. The clumps are adorned in late summer with amazing clusters of pure white flowers.
