Elephant Ears (Colocasia esculenta) brings a tropical touch to the garden border with big, bold foliage. The bright, fast-growing leaves add textural interest and broad swaths of green. Huge heart-shaped leaves last all season long, and are a great screen or backdrop for flowers and foliage in a sunny to part-shade garden. Gardeners love these plants because they are easy to grow, great in containers, and rabbit and deer-resistant.
