Colocasia (Elephant Ears) 'Blue Hawaii'

Must be kept from buying one @ USF Botanical Gardens Spring Plant Festival Apr Seriously, an intervention is in order.

Dreaming of a touch of paradise after a long week? I love the relaxed vibe of this pool villa near the surfers paradise of Batu Bolong beach, Canggu, Bali, Indonesia. Set among palms and lush tropica

Tropical Landscape Bed - This lush bed contains only 4 plants. The contrast in heights & color give it a well-balanced look. All of the plants will work for zone 9 (except palm-see below for alternatives), but a very cold night or frost may cause some to have foliage damage or die back to the ground-returning in Spring. Christmas Palm Tree [Queen, Foxtail, and King best suited for zone 9]. Elephant Ear (Colocasia). Hawaiian Ti Plants (Cordyline Terminalis). Philodendron (Xanadu).

Good example of layering - can use these sorts of plants in most of your garden beds. So you've got tall palms at the back, the Elephant ear adds drama, the cordylines (red ones) colour, and the lower philodendron covers the ground.

Lady Palm (Rhapis humilis)

Lady Palm (Rhapis humilis) H W very slow growing, part shade to full shade, cold hardy to easy maintenance and adaptable.

Bold clumps of Colocasia esculenta ‘Fontanesii’ (black taro) help divide the small garden into separate spaces.
