Colocasia gigantea 'Thailand Giant'
Colocasia gigantea 'Thailand Giant', is absolutely enormous. The tall stature and leaves up to 5' long x 4' wide make this plant a knock out in the garden. You'll want to plant this elephant ear where onlookers can marvel at the size. A masterpiece that can be used by itself in a garden planting or add more color with lower growing annuals, like SunPatiens, around the base. Bulbs can be dug in colder regions in fall and stored in a frost free area until spring planting. Technically a perennial plant that is sensitive to cold temperatures (temperennial).
