(aka: Colocasia 1998-01) This elephant ear is the first release from the incredible breeding program of Hawaii's Dr. John Cho. This first release forms a stout 4' tall clump of glaucous-green leaves held atop thick, jet-black stems. The leaves are highlighted by a central purple vein that radiates out into the leaf. The same veins are also prominently visible on the leaf backs as the wind blows. Colocasia 'Royal Cho' is a dramatic improvement on the currently grown cultivars and the only one from a controlled hybridization program.
