A colocasia with ornamental flowers!

Colocasia Gigantes™ 'Fierce'

A behemoth of a plant with some of the most unique features we've ever seen in a colocasia. Glossy green leaves are highlighted and accented by deep maroon veins and stems.

One of the largest plants in the Gigante Series from breeder Brian Williams, this new behemoth is arguably the most unique as well. When Brian breeds for big, he usually also breeds for unique and with Fierce Gigante, he has both. Strong, maroon-purple stems form the foundation for large, green, heart-shaped leaves, which are also complimented by maroon-purple veins. Once mature, plants regularly produce tall, purple flowers with white spaths, resembling lovely, ornate candles ablaze. A one-of-a-kind plant, this is the first Colocasia we’ve seen with ornamental flowers!
