Unique leaves with accentuated purple veins

Colocasia ‘Pharaoh’s Mask’

Dark veins pop from bright green leaves creating a 3-D affect, making it impossible to ignore

A unique variety, ‘Pharaoh’s Mask has bright green leaves that are accentuated by bulging purple veins, creating an unusual 3D effect that is impossible to ignore. At maturity, the leaf edges curve under, showing off the purple veins even more. Strong, dark stems, (petioles) the same color of the veins, support individual leaves like masquerade masks, to form tight clumps that stand 4’ tall and are tolerant of full sun or part shade. Pharaoh’s Mask lends itself to containers, where it can be placed in various garden spaces to show off its amazing attributes as well as in mass plantings and near the water’s edge – just be careful not to get its feet too wet!
