Common name elephant ears

Life cycle perennial (Z8-11)

Fast-growing aroid with deep purple textured leaves. We've grown similar varieties before in Pennsylvania, but here in Texas we can actually expect to keep the plant alive through winter. I got this specimen for the pond, where it adds nice contrast to the many spikey plants and the greens of the lilypads.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: waterfall pond
