Heart of the Jungle® Elephant's Ear is a tropical plant with thing, spindly stems that allow the massive leaves to spread out in a wide arc and gracefully hang above the center. This habit can allow for fantastic planting combinations when lower-growing plants are placed so that Heart of the Jungle's leaves hang over them. Don't be afraid to plant Heart of the Jungle alone though, as it still looks just as elegant by itself. This award winner is an annual in most zones, but will be perennial in zones 8 through 11.

  • 36-60 inches tall and spreads up to 36-60 inches at maturity
  • Plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily)
  • Grow in zones 8-11

Care: According to the Humane Society of America Colocasia plants can be toxic to pets. This is means that the plants are generally identified as having the capability for producing a toxic reaction. This plant is not edible and can be harmful to humans if ingested.

These are durable plants that will perform best with moist to wet soil, but can tolerate some drought stress. Drought stress will negatively affect the appearance of the plant. Colocasia form tubers and these tubers can be stored for replanting in the spring. To dig and store tubers follow these directions. First, allow frost to kill the top of the plant then cut back the stems and dig the tubers. Wash off any soil and then allow the tubers to dry. Wrap dry tubers in newspapers or pack them in peat moss. Label each tuber or group of tubers so you know what they are come spring. Store tubers in a dark, cool (35 to 45 F) place. Do not allow tubers to freeze.
