Considered a type of aquatic and invasive plants this specimen is very appropriate as decorative plant when you can have a fountain. This film aims to display painstaking details of its leaves, stems and how it propagates. As all the films of this channel this one will also aim to only visually display it and let you have ideas for outdoor gardening.

Most gardeners like plants that lend a tropical feel to the landscape. Some of the easiest tropical plants to grow that have a big impact are elephant ears. There are two species commonly found in our Mississippi landscapes, Alocasia and Colocasia, and they're both called elephant ears. But today we're just going to look at Colocasia, which is also called taro. These all feature big leaves and big texture, but they're not all green. In fact, there are Colocasia with black leaves. A couple of fantastic examples are Black Coral and Diamond Head. Diamond Head has jet black leaves that have a texture resembling corrugation. Black Coral has large glossy chocolaty black leaves with finely ruffled edges. The large green leaves of Blue Hawaii feature prominent bluish-purple veins. The edges are undulating and the dark burgundy petioles are glossy. Colocasia Mojito adds a refreshing color splash to the garden with its medium greens leaves speckled with dark flecks of purple. One of what I think is the prettiest of the Colocasia is Red Stem Taro. This plant has beautiful green leaves and bright red petioles. Colocasia can be readily identified because of the downward pointing foliage. Be sure to grow in the full sun and provide consistent soil moisture; in fact they can be grown in standing water. Going to the tropics may not be possible, but we can think we live there with Colocasia in the landscape. I'm horticulturist Gary Bachman for Southern Gardening.

Colocasia esculenta, commonly called elephant's ear, is a tuberous, stemless, frost-tender perennial of the arum family (see also calla lily and jack-in-the-pulpit) which typically grows 3-6' tall and as wide. For gardeners, it is primarily grown as a foliage plant with huge, heart-shaped to arrowhead-shaped, conspicuously-veined, downward-pointing, peltate leaves (to 2' long) on long, stout, succulent stems. As the common name suggests, each leaf purportedly resembles an elephant's ear. Calla lily-like flowers with yellowish-white spathes and spadixes are infrequently produced and usually hidden by the foliage when they do occur. This species is also commercially grown as a food crop in Hawaii (poi is made from the tubers) where it is commonly called taro.

Ann bought an Elephant Ear corm (aka "taro" or "colocasia esculenta") and the leaves have been growing this summer. When we lived in Kansas City over 20 years ago we enjoyed driving by yards that has these in this landscape, and now we finally have one. This is a video of how it looks in our front garden as of Saturday, July 22, 2017. Because of the coldness of our zone (Zone 5B), we have to dig the corm up before winter and store it in the garage. It's not much work in order to have this beautiful plant on display every year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colocasia_esculenta https://hortnews.extension.iastate.edu/2005/5-4-2005/elephantear.html * If you like what I do, and want to support, please consider making a donation via Paypal: https://www.paypal.me/ambientrushton Follow Mark Rushton's ambient/electronic music at Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/3o7In5aHAnzK7WYGHY5Khx Buy Mark Rushton ambient/electronic music downloads at Bandcamp: https://markrushton.bandcamp.com/

Green Taro is a tuberous bulb plant growing 3-5 ft tall. The large leaves of the plant resemble elephant ears. It produces heart shaped leaves 2-3 ft long and 1-2 ft across on 3 ft long stalks that all emerge from an upright tuberous rootstock, technically a corm. The inflorescence, which is rarely produced in cultivated plants, is a pale green spathe and spadix, typical of the arum family. The corm is shaped like a top with rough ridges, lumps and spindly roots, and usually weighs around 0.5-1 kg, but occasionally as much as 3.5 kg. The skin is brown and the flesh is white or pink. Certain kinds of taros produce smaller tubers or "cormels" which grow off the sides of the main corm.

Colocasia esculenta is a tropical plant grown primarily for its edible corms, the root vegetables most commonly known as taro. It is believed to be one of the earliest cultivated plants. Linnaeus originally described two species which are now known as Colocasia esculenta and Colocasia antiquorum of the cultivated plants that are known by many names including eddoes, dasheen, taro, but many later botanists consider them all to be members of a single, very variable species, the correct name for which is Colocasia esculenta.
