This astonishing Elephant Ear is well-named -- it really does look like something that would grow for the giant in JACK AND THE BEANSTALK. The foliage is absolutely massive -- many feet long and wide -- with a glossy texture, prominent ribbing, and a rich blue-green cast that lightens to chartreuse around the edges. Jack's Giant is a triploid, meaning it has three times the chromosomal power of most other Elephant Ears! And you will see the power in your garden!

Jack's Giant is native to East Asia and India, and certainly lends a big splash of tropical flair to any garden setting. Reaching at least 7 feet tall and 5 to 8 feet wide, it thrives in moist to boggy or even wet soils, preferring those that are well enriched with organic matter. In wintertime, however, it needs much drier conditions to keep from rotting. Good drainage and consistent moisture is the solution, with a siting in sun to light shade.

Find a position of prominence for this extraordinary plant. It could easily become the focal point of the patio or deck, or join taller shrubs and trees around the perimeter of the property. As a specimen it is unforgettable, yet it is quite easy to grow and needs no maintenance. Zones 7-10.

Truly amazing!

Visitors always remark on our Elephant Ears....they take pictures standing next to them, and then they hide behind one leaf and peek out. I mound up wood chips in the winter over the bulbs, and it gets easily in the teens here in Nashville. You won't regret adding this to your garden....not one bit.
