Find elephant’s ears at your local nursery. Buy them growing in 1-gallon pots, or purchase tubers to plant.
Choose from many colorful selections. ‘Mojito’ has bright green leaves with purple-black blotches. ‘White Lava’ offers green leaves with a creamy center. Try the black, wavy leaves of ‘Puckered Up’ (below) from the Southern Living Plant Collection.
Grow these plants in a spot that is mostly sunny. They prefer slightly moist soil. Feed with Espoma Plant-tone (5-3-3).more
