Alocasia macrorrhizos

Large-rooted alocase, the giant taro, gigantism in the garden.

This spectacular plant can reach 1.5 m in height under the right growing conditions, making it a giant for arrangements in large tubs or in the ground. Its broad, oval, bright-green leaves have pronounced veins and a slightly wavy edge. The petioles are very erect. This plant, native mainly to Borneo, the Philippines and New Guinea, will add an unmistakable touch of exoticism wherever you place it in your garden.
