Colocasia esculenta or Elephant Ears 'Metallica' is a stunning plant that requires little maintenance for a beautiful year-round appearance. This plant can be grown in shaded areas with high moisture and will produce large, stunning leaves bronze to olive green in color.

Colocasias or Elephant Ears, as they are so aptly named, produce giant leaves. Metallica's dark foliage can reach two feet in length at maturity. This species is considered a perennial in warm climates, but can become damaged during winter if exposed to frost.

Native to Asia, this plant species was brought to the United States in the 1800s and has been gracing southern gardens ever since. Colocasias are adaptable, tolerant plants that can survive in drier climates or easily creep into the borders or wetlands or swamp areas.

Colocasia can be adapted to grow indoors. However, there is an adaptation period wherein existing foliage is likely to collapse and be replaced by new leaves.

Condition: One (1) Well rooted, starter size plant w/ 4 inch diameter root zone. Plant will be a minimum of about 6 to 8 inches tall and unlikely to have bloom or bud at the time of shipping. May be shipped bare, wrapped root ball w/o pot.
