Named after the rare Hawaiian flycatcher bird, this very rare, small-growing elephant ear is one of the classic old Hawaiian cultivars. Colocasia 'Elepaio' makes a small, 3' tall clump of green foliage that is heavily spotted with white paint-like flecks. This unstable chimeral variegation pattern often results in some leaves that are half green and half white. Colocasia esculenta 'Elepaio' is a true curiosity and what we call a "fun" plant for the garden.
