We love being able to share Colocasia 'Aloha'...the 2017 release from Hawaii's Dr. John Cho. Using our 2007 introduction, Colocasia 'Coal Miner', John was able to combine the leaf pattern of the Colocasia 'Illustris' group with a clumping form of Colocasia esculenta. The result is Colocasia 'Aloha'...a 4' tall x 3' wide, extremely vigorous elephant ear that produces incredibly glossy black foliage. The 2' long x 1' wide black leaves are contrasted nicely on both the front and back by green veins.
