Heart of the Jungle® Elephant's Ear is a tropical plant with thin, 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.

This highly sought-after container size for annuals provides immediate impact upon planting because they are grown in a larger container. They were created for gardeners who are looking to fill in their landscapes and not have to wait as long for them to catch up to other plants in the same area. They also work extremely well when planted alone in 10" - 12" containers or as Thrillers for combinations in 16" and larger planters!

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

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.

I planted 2 of these in tall pots in font of my screen house. They grew beautifully I brought into basement over winter and they have started growing. They are in the house till they can go back in yard. Tons of compliments. Definitely a winner.

Elephant Ears

I planted my elephant ears in planters since I live in an area where the zone is 5b. I’m waiting for the weather to warm up and the elephant ears to grow but until then I definitely will order more plants from Proven Winners. So far, my elephant ears have 2-3 leaves.
