What could be more dramatic than giant elephant ears interplanted with bananas and gingers? Or what could be better than a black elephant ear understory with lime green angel trumpets above? There are all sizes, shapes and colors to choose from.
Odora -- (Alocasia odora): Pleated, bright green foliage makes a great contrast with other varieties. Clumping variety.
Mature height 2-3ft. Part to full sun. Zones 7-10. $12.99
Portodora -- (Alocasia x portora 'Portodora): This superb alocasia hybrid was selected by Ron Weeks
from seedlings of an Alocasia x portora cross (Alocasia odora x Alocasia portei), made by LariAnn Garner of Aroidia Research.
Alocasia 'Portodora' makes a stunning upright clump that is essentially an improved Alocasia macrorrhizos.
Tall grower with a ruffle-edged leaf. This huge, non-aggressive species is the perfect centerpiece for a tropical garden.
Mature height 6-8 feet. Part to full sun. Zones 7-10. $29.99, $15 boxing charge
applies to this one because it's huge (or it can be packed with up to 3 other items in a single box!).
Black Magic Taro -- (Colocasia esculenta): Dusty black leaves that like part to full sun. Plant with bananas and gingers to
make a feast for your eyes and table. Mature height 4-5ft. Part to full sun. Zones 7-10. $12.99

veins and midribs make this taro a jungle garden delight. Looks great with Black Magic Taro.

Mojito Taro (Colocasia 'Mojito'): We all fell in love with this variegated elephant ear found here in Florida.
