Elephant Ears Illustris (colocasia antiquorum)
Elephant Ears Illustris  

Colocasia antiquorum 'Illustris", also called 'Imperial Taro' is a black-leaved elephant ear with striking vibrant emerald green veins. Proliferates in moist soil but will also thrive in regular garden soil. Plant in light shade for deeper black coloring. Prefers sun to partial shade.

Illustris works equally well in large containers, ponds or landscapes, growing up to 5-6 feet tall.

Elephant Ear varieties are hardy in zones 7-10 as
perennials and suitable in zones 4-6 as annuals.
They are popular as annuals due to their rapid
growth - colocasia makes a dramatic impact to the
landscape within just one growing season.
