(aka: Colocasia 2005-17) Colocasia 'Diamond Head' is a 2008 release from John Cho's breeding program that takes elephant ears to a whole new level. With this introduction, John has been able to combine the color of Colocasia 'Black Magic' with the glossy leaf surface usually seen only in alocasias. The 15" long, glossy, chocolate-black, lightly ruffled-edged leaves compose a well-behaved 4' tall clump. Remember, rich moist soil grows the best elephant ears.
