Overview & Details

Antiquorum Illustris Elephant Ears - 1 Bulb
Elephant Ear bulbs are among the most eye catching of the bulbs available for purchase. Not only are they one of the largest flowering bulbs but they are also very versatile and can grow with little sunlight to full shade. Beautiful on their own or planted as a back drop for your favorite blooms, they provide a bold tropical effect in nearly any garden. Once established, they require little to no attention. This bulb, grown for its leaves, won an award. A bold and impressive Elephant Ear classic, it is heat-tolerant as well as a fast grower. You can use it as a houseplant or as a water plant as it loves the edges of ponds. The foliage is green with purple black, making for a real thriller in a tropical container combination planter. It is also stunning when planted with Canna bulbs.

This item is not for sale to customers in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. It cannot be shipped to a P.O. Box. Orders must have a physical address.
