Plants for sale are Colocasia Surf City plants
Each plant I offer is Hybridized and grown from tissue cultures to be a disease free exact replica of the mother plant. Plants for sale are between 5-16″ tall. The vigorous growing tight clump is composed of 5′ tall stalks that are purple toward the top, each holding a narrowly pointed, amazingly ruffled leaf.
Each leaf is adorned with a small purple dot where the stem attaches to the leaf back. The narrow ruffled leaves add an entirely different texture in the garden. We recommend using Bio Spectrum organic fertilizer located in our store. Ships to the continental United States only.
