In contrast to Colocasias, the leaf tips of Alocasia odora point upwards. If you’re looking for impressive, exotic and architectural foliage plants to bring holiday vibes to your summer garden, this jungle gem is the perfect thing! Alocasia odora also known as 'Giant Taro' or 'Elephants Ear', grows quickly and produces leaves of a gobsmacking size on chunky, upright stems. The glossy greenery looks fabulous combined with contrasting foliage plants, or use it as a luxurious backdrop for brightly coloured exotic flowers like dahlias or calla lilies for a truly tropical look.

Start these vigorous Alocasia odora bulbs off indoors and enjoy them as a contemporary houseplant until late spring, then move them outside and let them power through the summer season with all their industrious might! Alocasia thrive in tropical conditions so they’ll need to bask in the hottest part of the garden soak up a good daily watering to keep them looking lush. Bunch them together with other robust or leafy plants for a big, power-packed display.  

Our Colocasia and Alocasia bulbs are grown and cultivated in Costa Rica.
