Elephant ears are the ultimate plant for a dramatic statement. Growing to 3 – 4 feet in one season, with huge elephant ear shaped leaves. Plant them in large planters or in garden beds. Colocasia enjoy a full sun to partial shade location in very rich moisture retentive soil. It’s worth over wintering and saving the dormant roots to have huge plants the following year.
