A ginormous new hybrid

Colocasia Gigantes™ Noble

This ginormous hybrid has Colocasia gigantea in it's blood. That means it will grow 6-8' tall in a single season! Leaves are purple-blue in full sun , yet softer purple with a green tint in the shade. The veins emerge light green and fade to deep purple.

Are you an impatient grower or gardener?  this is the series for you.  Gigantes is Spanish for giants, and boy are they huge.  These new tropical elephant ears will grow up to 8 feet tall in one growing season and the leaves on these plants can reach 2-3 feet long.  Our incredibly bold, colorful selections are perfectly happy in the ground or in large containers. Make a tropical oasis anywhere you need with the Gigantes from Breeder Brian Williams of  Brian's Botanicals in Louisville, KY.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
