Elegant Elephant Ear Taro – A Tropical Delight for Your Garden

About the Bloom

The Elephant Ear Taro plant, also known as Colocasia esculenta, does not produce blooms. However, its large, heart-shaped leaves are the main attraction. The leaves come in shades of deep green, providing a lush and tropical look to any garden or landscape.

What to Know About the Plant

The Elephant Ear Taro plant is a deciduous plant, meaning it goes dormant during the winter months. It can grow up to 6 feet tall and spread out to cover a wide area, making it a bold statement piece in your garden. The leaves are the most prominent feature of this plant, with their striking size and shape adding a touch of exotic flair to your outdoor space.

Enhancing your Fruitscape

Add a touch of tropical elegance to your fruitscape with the Elephant Ear Taro plant. Pair it with fruit trees like Banana or Papaya to create a lush oasis in your garden. Berry plants such as Blackberries or Raspberries can complement the bold foliage of the Elephant Ear Taro, adding pops of color and texture. Tropical plants like Pineapple or Passionfruit vines can enhance the exotic vibe of this plant, creating a cohesive and visually stunning landscape design. Herbs like Lemongrass or Mint can also be a great addition, adding fragrance and culinary versatility to your outdoor space.

Planting & Care
Landscaping with House Plants

While this plant is perfectly suited for growing in a container as a house plant, it can just as well be planted in the ground to enhance a garden. We love these plants for that reason. They add instant appeal to spruce up the atmosphere wherever you choose. They typically prefer a little more shade and warmth which is why they do well on a patio or inside the house. The love of house plants is so natural and healthy. House plants improve the quality of air and enhance our moods. That’s why we can’t seem to get enough of them! Try mixing colors and textures to find your favorite planter look.

Growing Guide

Currently, we only have growing guides for our edible plants.   We are working on them for our ornamental & landscaping plants, and will add them in the near future.  Contact us if you have questions on how to plant and nurture your House Plants, and we will be glad to have one of our gardeners assist you.

Ornamental & Landscaping Plants at Just Fruits & Exotics

Although Just Fruits and Exotics has been providing ornamental and landscaping plants to customers at our nursery since we added “Exotics” to our name in the 1990’s, we never had them available to our customers online.

However, September of 2018, with the launch of our updated Just Fruits and Exotics website, we added many of our ornamental and landscaping plants to our online store for our customers nationwide.   We encourage you to “Fruitscape” your yards, mixing edibles and ornamentals to make your own edible garden.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
