THIS COLOCASIA IS CURRENTLY COMING BACK FROM DORMANCY! 

A variety of Taro grown for its spectacular and dramatic foliage.

A tuberous, frost-tender perennial with long-stalked, thick and glossy, heart-shaped, chocolate, ruffled leaves up to 37 cm long. The leaves point downwards, and make a bold statement on their own, or a dark contrasting backdrop when planted with bright tropicals.

We love this colocasia for the colour, its gorgeous in person

Suitable for indoors or outdoors

Likes sun to part-shade, and protection from the wind. Plant in rich, moist soil. Taro is happy to be planted in up to 15cm of standing water. But if that doesn’t suit you- just water regularly, and fertilise over spring-summer to encourage growth. These bad boys can get to 120cm H x 90cm W.

Our Colocasia is featured with our Amarillo planter
