Colocasia 'White Lava' is 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.
