Colocasia Gigantea And Other Great Large In stark contrast to the dwarf elephant ears are the towering Colocasia gigantea and similar forms which max out at over 6.5' tall or have extremely large leaves. These plants are bold statements in the garden and look great as specimen plants. They can be grown in large containers as well and can be under planted with a variety of small plants to compliment the texture or color. Colocasia esculenta 'Burgundy Stem' (Sun to Light Shade, Zone 7b 10, Ht 80") is a gem that makes a bold statement in the garden, with 6'+, deep purple petioles leading to the 3' long, giant green leaves with a slight hazy purple cast, like the air over Los Angeles. The 1' tall yellow flowers have a wonderful papaya like fragrance. 84") is a monster Colocasia esculenta. I hope you've got your beanstalk planted 'cause 'Jack's Giant' is here. We received our original plant from Jack de Vroomen of Marlboro Bulb Company, who brought this to us from Costa Rica. The tuber was much larger and shaped differently from other Colocasia esculenta forms we had grown. In our garden, the plants easily reached 7' tall, even in a very dry section, with medium green leaves similar to typical Colocasia esculenta. We are pretty sure it is a triploid form, which should increase winter hardiness. Remember, rich organic soils that are moist during the growing season result in the best growth. Despite the lack of calories, we hope you'll enjoy supersizing your garden! Colocasia gigantea (Sun to Part Sun, Zone 7b 10, at least, Ht. 60") is not the tallest elephant ear that we grow but is has a giant disposition thanks to its enormous leaves. Thanks to collector extraordinaire Hayes Jackson for sharing this very distinct and hard to find elephant ear. Resembling an Alocasia, the 5' tall gray petioles (stalks) hold the large, silver veined, gray green leaves outright. Colocasia gigantea Thailand Giant Strain (Sun to part sun, Zone 8 10, Ht. 108") is the curious king of our Colocasia collection (do you like alliteration?). Make mine super sized! This huge strain of the giant elephant ear was grown from wild collected seed (PES 1003B) from Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand, in 2003 by former PDN Research Manager Petra Schmidt. In the wild, the plants reached a massive 9' tall, which is much larger than the clone of Colocasia gigantea we currently grow. For us, each individual leaf grows in excess of 5' long x 4' wide. Each seedling will differ slightly, but massive plants will be the result. In foliage, the leaves are an attractive glaucous gray which is typical of this species. From an early age, the plants are adorned with clusters of dramatically large, pleasantly scented, white flowers.
