This Elephant ear is the giant of all giants. Planted in a garden it will dwarf the other plants you own. The size of this plant is a serious spectacle and in the right hands it will add an awesome like jungle appeal to the garden. Visitors and passersby will be wowed by the scope and tropical appearance of the 5' by 4' leaves. Yes. An adult human can easily hide behind a single leaf. Full grown plants can reach 9 feet tall in a season and will grow even larger in tropical climates. Each plant produces sweet smelling, white, lily-like flowers, but let's be honest, most people don't get them for the flowers!

Colocasia gigantea.

Plant arrived in excellent condition! They are thriving and have already doubled or tripled their size, and I haven’t even taken them out of the pots they were shipped in yet!

Plant arrived

Very long lead time, I think almost 3 months. Not sure I would have ordered them knowing the lead time. Plant arrived slight damaged with one of the two leaves broken off. However, after 2 weeks in ground plant seems to be recovering.

Only downside is the long wait. All of the other ears and bulbs in the ground for the last 60 days have a huge head start. Would have like to see these delivered 2 months ago.
