A colossally sized, C. Illustris type on steroids

Colocasia 'Imperial Gigante'

Massive black leaves are particularly ornate, accented by light green veins and stems. Robust in nature, these 3-4' long leaves are held horizontally like giant fan blades.

Are you an impatient grower or gardener?  This is the series for you.  Gigantes is Spanish for giants, and boy are they huge.  These new tropical elephant ears will grow up to 8 feet tall in one growing season and the leaves on these plants can reach 2-3 feet long.  Our incredibly bold, colorful selections are perfectly happy in the ground or in large containers. Make a tropical oasis anywhere you need with the Gigantes from Breeder Brian Williams of Brian's Tropicals in Louisville, KY.

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.
