Alocasia cucullata 'Yellow Tail' is a quirky little elephant ear that has fared very well in our garden trials since 2002. Alocasia 'Yellow Tail' is a vigorous selection of Alocasia cucullata that forms 3' tall x 3' wide clumps of small, twisty, thick, glossy green leaves, each bordered with an irregular, narrow yellow edge. The amount of variegation increases with the maturity of the plant.....perfect for aroid collectors.
