(aka: Colocasia 2005-24) There's nothing blue about this 2008 John Cho hybrid, except for you if you don't get one before we sell out. The medium green, 12" long leaves are highlighted by the most dramatic purple veins we've ever seen on an elephant ear. On the leaf back, the veins are equally dramatic, only cranberry instead of purple. This small elephant ear tops out for us at only 30" tall...perfect for a smaller location. Remember, rich moist soil grows the best elephant ears.
