For those variegated nuts out there (and we know you're out there) we are excited to again offer the rarely seen Colocasia 'Yellow Splash'. There are several splashed forms of elephant ear in the US, but this name should only be applied to this clone. Each 4' tall clump of large, grey-green leaves is heavily splashed with creamy yellow patterns, differing in each leaf. Colocasia 'Yellow Splash' spreads via rhizomes, so propagation will be easy...but keep it away from streams in warm winter climates as it may become too vigorous. Rich organic soils that stay moist in summer will result in the largest elephant ear plants. Thanks to plantsman Frank Galloway for originally sharing this exciting introduction.
