For in-your-face tropical bravado, you can’t beat Colocasia. Giant, “Elephant-ear” leaves add instant drama to any garden setting. Coffee Cups has unique olive toned foliage with mocha leaves and stems – the perfect accessory to your camo leggings or shorts. The cupped leaves will collect rain until it becomes heavy enough to pour out – like a fountain.
A fast grower to about 3-5 feet tall and wide, Coffee Cups is a knockout thriller for a large container, a water garden accent, or really anywhere you want to add some bold to your beds. In the garden, it will be an instant focal point as a specimen or a bodacious hedge. Award-winning Coffee Cups is a hybrid of Colocasia esculenta, a corm (similar to a bulb) hardy to zone 8. In colder zones, it can be dug and stored over winter like a dahlia.
