Colocasia 'Tropical Storm' is the long-awaited 2016 release from Hawaii's Dr. John Cho, that combines the black leaf color of Colocasia 'Black Magic' with the white striping of Colocasia 'White Lava'. Colocasia esculenta 'Tropical Storm' is a compact, but fast clumper that grows to 30" tall, composed of purple-black foliage which is adorned in summer with a prominent central creamy white streak. You've never seen an elephant ear like this before...we promise.
