Alocasia cucullata 'Yellow Tail' is a quirky little elephant ear that has fared very well in our garden trials since 2002. In shape, Alocasia 'Yellow Tail' resembles a vigorous form of typical Alocasia cucullata, forming 3' tall x 3' wide clumps of small, twisty, thick, glossy green leaves, but with leaves that are bordered with an irregular, narrow yellow edge...a plant for collectors who need every one. The amount of variegation increases with the maturity of the plant.
