A funky new line of Colocasias named for their brightly colored foliage. This new series is very vigorous with colorful stems, and superior foliage in magnificent shades on plants that are just the right size. Plant a Gecko in your garden or in a pot for instant color and a superior tropical effect. What do Geckos and Elephant Ears have in common? They both like warm weather, and they are uniquely colored. They can also range in size from very small, to quite large. This series has it all.
Breeder Brian Williams has taken the best of what's available and made them better. That's what good breeders do. We all fell in love with Mojito, but growers found it lacked vigor. Lemon-Lime Gecko is vigorous and sturdy and it holds up well all summer in the garden.
