Colocasia Giant Green Elephant Ear

$8.99

Green, upright variety reaching lengths of 3 feet on top of 3- to 7-foot stems. They thrive in full sun to part shade. Here in Tennessee, most people treat Elephant Ears as a perennial. They can be left outside year-round (cut back to soil level and cover with some mulch in Fall) When spring comes, pull the mulch back and wait for your beautiful elephant ear to reemerge for another growing season.

Care

Zones 8 - 10 (but many Tennesseans have success keeping these are outdoor perennials!) Full to partial sun with shade during the hottest part of the day, if possible. The more sun the plant receives, the more water it will need. Prefers well draining but moist, fertile soil. Fertilization will help your Elephant Ear grow big! They are fast growing and tend to reach their mature size in just a few months.

Growth Habit

2’ - 10’ tall and wide. 

Toxicity

Toxic to humans and pets. Do not ingest.
