A lovely architectural addition to the Masquerade™ Series

Alocasia 'Zulu Mask'

Another fantastic addition to the Masquerade™ series, Zulu Mask is certain to capture the attention of onlookers! Leaves are long, narrow and deeply lobed, and can reach 2’ in length.

Reminiscent of party masks, the Alocasias in this series are all so ornate and festive you'll want to use their grand and stately foliage to make masks of your own. Mayan and Zulu tribal masks are some of the most beautiful in the World—coveted for their intricate carvings and detailed ornamentation. Create a tropical oasis in your garden with these new, amazingly robust selections.

Zulu Mask has some of the prettiest leaves we've seen in a long while. Deeply lobed in the center, it makes a true arrow in maturity. Celery green veins accent deep, forest green leaves on the top and deep eggplant purple undersides on the back. Strong lime green stems hold the leave high in the air, creating true artwork when mature each summer.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
