Description
Mojito (ppaf) - this tropical is a real eye-catcher and made visitors take a second look! Dark irregular markings on this lush green leaf; 24"-36"; whz 7-10; will arrive in ~4" pots from tissue culture.

Native to tropical Asia and Polynesia and considered an evergreen perennial tuberous herb, Colocasia has given us lots of pleasure all summer long with its huge, velvet or glossy textured, dark green, heart-shaped leaves that are lined with darker veins, adding real drama to the shade garden near our pond. It's also spectacular as a sturdy backdrop for perennials in the flower border, although we suspect in most full sun situations, it will perform better if a soaker hose provides a little constant moisture. Excellent for water gardens when planted in a pot submerged in the pond; plant 18" on center; whz 8-11 (zone 7 in damp soil with mulch) (HINT: The height seems to have everything to do with the richness of the soil and the available moisture); Esculenta will arrive in bulb form; all of the rest are from tissue culture and will arrive in ~4' pots ready for your garden or for a larger pot on the heat mat, depending on where you live.
