This new Alan Galloway elephant ear introduction has been diagnosed as borderline schizophrenic...some leaves are dark green with chartreuse yellow flecks, while others have large sectors of yellow in between the green. In addition to the leaves are the cool leaf petioles which are heavily striped green and yellow. Alan discovered Colocasia esculenta 'Lime Aide' while ditch-hopping in the Philippines...another reason for expanding this botanical pastime.
