Lemon yellow leaves with a bright red eye.

Colocasia Gecko™ Red-Eyed

Bright lime green leaves are punctuated by a deep red eye and held high about the plant on strong, grass green stems.

A funky new line of Colocasias named for their brightly colored foliage. This new series is very vigorous with colorful stems, and superior foliage in magnificent shades on plants that are just the right size. Plant a Gecko in your garden or in a pot for instant color and a superior tropical effect. What do Geckos and Elephant Ears have in common? They both like warm weather, and they are uniquely colored. They can also range in size from very small, to quite large.

This series has it all. Red-Eyed Gecko is the third to be introduced into this series with its chartreuse foliage and deep red eye—like the eye of a Gecko. This is one unusually bright and sunny selection with strong lime green stems. Keep this one out of hot afternoon sun and you will have a bright, happy beauty all summer long.
