Colocasia gigantea 'Thailand Giant'

Common Name: Giant Elephant Ear

To say that this plant will dwarf any plant you already own would be putting it mildly!  ‘Thailand Giant’ is much larger than C. gigantea.  Its glaucous green leaves can measure a whopping 5ft long x 4ft wide each.  Full grown plants typically reach 9ft tall, though some grown in tropical climates have reportedly reached 20ft. 

From a young age, this plant produces pleasantly perfumed, white, lily-like flowers, though it really is grown more for its gigantic leaves. 

Thanks to Petra Schmidt of Plant Delights Nursery, who collected seed growing in the wild in Thailand, we can all enjoy this seedling selection. Create your own private jungle with Colocasia g. ‘Thailand Giant’!
