Colocasia 'White Lava' is the latest in the elephant ear breeding handiwork of Hawaii's Dr. John Cho. Several years ago, we shared Colocasia 'Nancy's Revenge' with John in the hope he could create a non-running improved version and, in 2013, the resulting Colocasia 'White Lava' was unveiled. Colocasia 'White Lava' is a clumping elephant ear with large glossy green leaves which, as the season progresses, are adorned with a wide band of creamy white down the center of each leaf, later radiating out into the side veins. Each amazing leaf is further highlighted by a large purple spot where the leaf attaches to the stalk. We hope you'll agree that Colocasia 'White Lava' is one of the most amazing elephant ears you've ever grown.
