Shoulda, coulda, woulda been an elephant ear. Remusatia is one of those splinter groups of fundamentalist elephant ears that broke off from the genus Colocasia over differences in reproductive philosophy. Remusatia pumila 'Mini Mask' is a Plant Delights/JLBG introduction with a particularly dark face on each 8" long x 5" wide leaf. Each leaf is highlighted by muted silver veins and a dark purple blush to the leaf back. Remusatia pumila is a slowly stoloniferous species that makes a 4' wide non-invasive mound in 5 years. The plant is made up of 14" tall leaf stalks that emerge in mid-June. In early summer, the spiky, fragrant, yellow flowers are produced inside the leaf canopy. In the wild, Remusatia pumila grows in humus-like soil and occasionally as an epiphyte.
