Colocasia and Alocasia, both commonly known as Elephant Ears, are tropical perennials from southern Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Guinea, parts of Australia, and the Pacific Islands. Gardeners love these easy-to-grow plants for their bold, architectural foliage to help give definition to outdoor spaces and to complement colorful flowers. As the summer wears on and other plants grow weary, Elephant Ears become more vigorous – colorful right up until the first frost! Plant in spring when the soil has warmed in a full- to part-sun location in wet or moisture-retentive soil, and feed and water regularly for best results. Elephant Ears are also popular houseplants and can be grown in large containers with plenty of watering and added humidity.
