Alocasia Yucatan Princess - Elephant Ear (S)


Alocasias are a family of hybrids originating in South East Asia, commonly known as the 'Elephant Ear'. An interesting mutation of the species Alocasia Sarawakensis, the 'Yucatan Princess' provides striking foliage to make a statement in any garden, outdoors or indoors. The 'Yucatan Princess' produces dark purple leather-like leaves on high, sturdy, stems that cast dark and striking silhouettes that will evoke a sense of drama in your space.
