All prices are GST inclusive but exclude freight (if applicable).

Unlike most other elephant ears, this light shade- and moisture-lover forms rounded patterned leaves of velvety medium green, each highlighted by a wide silver streak down the center vein with smaller silver veins radiating from the center to the leaf edge. All summer long, the plants produce a small yellow spathe and spadix flowers. The 45cm tall plants make 60cm wide clumps in 3 years but spread much faster (120cm wide patch in 2 years) in very wet soils by means of short, above-ground stolons.

Quite unique and quite beautiful!
