If you're looking to add another wild and crazy elephant ear to your garden, drink up. Colocasia 'Mojito' (pronounced "Mo-he-toe") is a sport of Colocasia 'Burgundy Stem' via Colocasia 'Black Marble', discovered at Florida's Agristarts. Named after the popular Cuban mixed drink, the amazing leaves are medium green with dark purple flecks throughout...just too cool! In moist, rich soils, you can expect the clump to reach 3', less in drier sites. Although winter-hardy in Zone 7b, the central tuber will often die in the low teens F so, to get larger-sized plants, mulch well in winter to protect the central tuber.
