Colocasia 'Nancy's Revenge' was introduced at the 2000 International Aroid Society meeting in Florida, where it was the most drooled-upon plant. Emerging solid green, the 25" long, light green leaves begin turning buttercream-yellow along the center at the onset of flowering, with which the coloring is genetically tied. The color pours down into the main vein creating a huge, bold Y-pattern in the center of the leaf, then bursts into the lateral (side) veins and begins its march to the margins. Colocasia 'Nancy's Revenge' sends out lots of side stolons that will root into the soil where moisture is adequate. As with all elephant ears...mo' moisture...mo' bigger. Colocasia 'Nancy's Revenge' was discovered in the Caribbean and imported by Jerry Kranz, who later named the plant for his business partner, Nancy McDaniels of Florida.
