Jumbo Upright Elephant Ears - 1 Bulb



Overview & Details

Jumbo Upright 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. Grown for only their foliage which are reminiscent of an elephant's ears. Once established, they require little to no attention. These giant upright Elephant Ears come from the Alocasia family and are known for their leaves, which point in an upward direction. This most impressive variety grows somewhat larger than our traditional Elephant Ears. Their leaves are huge, leathery thick, sculpted on rigid stems. These plants will make a passersby stop in their tracks. In native areas, under ideal conditions, the plants have reached 10 feet in height. They are easy to grow and look magnificent!
