To add an instant tropical impact in your landscape, the Alocasia"California" elephant ear is the plant for you.The plantworks great as a backdrop, bursting out of contrasting plants of contrasting texture or color, as well as in a bed of groundcovers, such as darkly colored liriope or mondo grass. Although "California" has smaller15-inch leaves than thefull-sized varieties of alocasias, the clumping nature of this plant makes up for the lack in leaf size. What’s more, during the warm summer months of the growing seasonalocasia can produce a new leaf every week, with each new leaf possibly being twice the size of the previous week. The leaf shapes can vary from slim arrowheads to wide heart-shaped leaves, with colorful veins and a variety of textures from thick, waxy, slick, and glossy. A site with plenty of moisture is best for dwarf elephant ear, but they will also rebound from a short dry spell especially if given a little shade. They are so comfortable in wet conditions that they’re often recommended as a top choice for a flood tolerant tropical climate, such as South Florida.
