Primarily grown for its spectacular foliage, Colocasia esculenta 'Mojito' (Taro) is a tuberous, frost-tender plant with large, heart-shaped, chartreuse green leaves flecked with deep purple to black. Unlike the leaves of Alocasia which point skyward, the leaves of Colocasia droop and point toward the ground. Reminiscent of calla lily flowers, pale yellow flowers are infrequently produced in summer. Strong, fast growing, this Elephant Ear is a hassle-free tropical that makes an unforgettable focal point and brings a distinctly tropical look to the landscape, water gardens or large containers.
