Alocasia nebula ‘Imperialis’

This horticultural jewel can reach 60 cm in height. An imperial sovereign.

Australian botanist Alistair, a specialist in aroids, of which the Alocasia genus is a part, described the true botanical identity of the nebula species in 2000. He had observed it in the mid-1990s in northwest Malaysia. Before then, it had been known as “cultivated Alocasia”. Nebula Alocasia ‘Imperialis’ is a royal highness known to collectors for its luminous, thick, alien-looking leaves, with an overall bluish-grey appearance. Dark main veins criss-cross the leaf. The underside of the leaf is wine-red.
