Colocasia Coal Miner

Smoky green leaves in large and striking form
Colocasia, also called taro plant or Elephant Ear, originates in southern Asia and India, and has been cultivated for centuries for many purposes. Today, Colocasia is a hit in American gardens for their heat-tolerant, large, striking foliage. Coal Miner Colocasia brings a smoky-green color to the garden, each leaf created in an elongated heart shape with white veining and smooth texture. Perfect for large containers on the patio, or placed alongside a water feature. Colcasia should be lifted in winter, or brought indoors in containers, in most of the United States.
