Alocasia commonly known as elephant ears come in all shapes and sizes and their uses range from indoor houseplants to hardy landscape specimens and mixed container centerpieces. Most varieties are tropical and need warmth and humidity, excellent drainage and for the most part shade. This group of plants belonging to the Aroid family is valued for their gorgeous leaves that are heart or spade shaped and beautifully colored in gleaming shades of green, purple, bluish green, red and bronze. they produce small calla-like flower spathes. Some of these plants can take full sun, but most want partial shade. They enjoy warmth and may slow down or go dormant if there is a drop in temperature or humidity. All alocasias produce tubes or rhizomes underground.

Colocasia, the oldest cultivated crop in the world is tha Taro plant or Colocasia. It has been grown in parts of tropical and subtropical Asia for a long time. These elephant ears on average reach 4 feet tall with a clump of large long stalked leaves that are heart shaped. They require lots of water to grow and do best in pond margins or wetland areas and will grow in sun or shade. Colocasias have colorful leaves and/or stems and are very heavy feeders. This is a fast turning crop for a
grower looking for spring and summer sales.

Philodendron is a large genus of flowering plants in the Araceae consisting of close to 900 or more species according to TROPICOS (a service of the Missouri Botanical Garden) native to the Americas and West Indies.

Alocasia 'New Guinea Gold' Alocasia 'New Guinea Gold' Alocasia macrorrhiza ‘New Guinea Gold’ is a most curious form from Papua New Guinea that has a peculiar habit of producing variegated leaves only at certain times of the year (typically late summer through Autumn), occasionally missing out entirely in a year.

The leaves are held upright on dramatically rigid stems. It is quite hardy, surviving 0 degrees F, but prefers warmer conditions. When they are young the leaves are completely green.

Colocasia nancyana Colocasia esculenta 'nancyana' or Nancy's Revenge Nancyana is one of those rare introductions that immediately becomes the new industry standard. Introduced at the 2000 International Aroid Society meeting in Florida, this dazzling elephant ear became the most wanted plant at the meeting. Emerging solid green, the 25” wide light green leaves begin turning butter cream-yellow along the center. The color then pours down into the main vein creating a huge bold Y-pattern in the center of the leaf. Color then bursts into the lateral (side) veins and begins its march to the margins. Coloring starts in spring, shortly after the first leaves mature. It sends out lots of side stolons which will root into the soil where moisture is adequate. The more moisture the larger the plant will grow. shaded to partial sun

Colocasia esculenta 'Ruffles' Colocasia esculenta 'Ruffles' This spectacular form of the hardy elephant ear comes to us from a garden in Anniston, Alabama where it was “discovered” by SPEPS member Hayes Jackson. We can attest that this clumper has both phenomenal vigor as well as hardiness. Each 3’ long leaf has incredibly scalloped edges that set it apart from typical Colocasia esculenta. In growth habit, it performs here as a clumper, unlike the more stoloniferous forms. Colocasia ‘Ruffles’ has also multiplied faster than any elephant ear we have grown, with clumps multiplying from 1 to 100 divisions in twelve months shaded to partial sun 6 to 8 weeks 8 to 14" 6 feet 7b

It is widely grown in semi-shade, usually in groups, in the tropical and subtropical regions, as well as in pots for indoors. ‘Lime Zinger’ is propagated easily by separation of the tuberous rhizomes 2000-3000 ft-c but will tolerate lower light levels. 50°-90°F 8 to 12 weeks 6-14" 3-4' Zone 9

Xanthosoma lindenii 'Magnificum' Xanthosoma lindenii 'Magnificum' An improved form of lindenii (Colombia) differing by having its yellowish to deep-green leaves beautifully and broadly veined with a cream to white color , and pale line just inside of the margin. This is an ornamental, evergreen herb, which grows from rhizome, with its showy arrow-shaped, thin-leathery leaves.

Xanthosoma sagittifolium Xanthosoma sagittifolium This stout, clumping herb of tropical South America is known by many as “elephant’s ear.” It is distinguished in part by its usually large leaves, with fleshy petioles to 6 feet long and broad arrowhead-shaped blades to 3 feet long (and nearly as wide at the blade base). These leaves arise from a broad corm; offshoots appear on short rhizomes extending from the corm. The species is most often confused with the taro plant, Colocasia esculenta, but taro leaves are peltate – the petioles attach to the blades at a point interior to the blade margin, not at the edge of the blade as in elephant’s ear and other members of the arum family 2000-3000 ft-c but will tolerate lower light levels. 50°-90°F 6 to 8 weeks 6-20" 5-7' Zone 9

Found growing in forest areas close to cultivated land where it is cultivated for food and fodder for cattle and pigs. Native to Caribbean Islands 2000-3000 ft-c but will tolerate lower light levels. 50°-90°F   6-14" 4-6'
