Giant, puckered leaves and improved hardiness.

Alocasia x ‘Borneo King’

Grows faster than Borneo Giant with enormous, rippled leaves - like Odora, with cold hardiness to zone 8!

Gigantic leaves standing straight up salute you as you walk past this tropical beauty.  Enormous, rippled , deep green leaves with a light green stems and veins make this new selection a stunner. One might ask if this is an improved form of the beloved ‘Borneo Giant’ and we would have to say, "It is indeed improved!"

After making multiple crosses with Borneo Giant and Odora, breeder Brian Williams came up with the perfect hybrid, exhibiting the best attributes of both parents: a faster rate of growth like Borneo with enormous, rippled leaves like Odora, and cold hardiness to zone 8! Start your own tropical paradise with this distinctly new hybrid. The leaves are certain to fan you as the summer breezes kick in!
