(aka: Colocasia 2004-39) This 2008 John Cho hybrid makes a low 3' tall x 5' wide non-stoloniferous clump, composed of 18" long dusty grey-lavender leaves, highlighted by dramatic purple veins. The back of each leaf is equally as dramatic, with the dark purple veins showing off against the grey-purple back. Colocasia 'Pineapple Princess' has proven to be a vigorous grower in our trials, flowering well in late summer and fall with spiky yellow flowers, which smell like fruit as they begin to open...magnificent! As with all elephant ears, rich moist soil will produce the best specimens.
