Plant Description

If you wanted to have one plant that could fill your balcony and still bring a tropical forest feel, Hardy Elephant Ears would be the perfect plant with its enormous leaves. This exotic tropical plant has gigantic green leaves with metallic purple undersides that are a striking addition to any home. The leaves are typically over 40cm in length, with fully grown plants being 1.5m in height and 1.5m in width allowing you to create the perfect forest feel with just one plant. 

Native to Micronesia, Hardy Elephant Ears originates from the mountainous regions of New Guinea. Hardy Elephant Ears have their name as this is a hardier variety of Elephant ears, and can tolerate cold weather and light frost. Given the right care and light you can leave this tropical plant in your balcony over the winter months. It is an absolutely stunning plant that sells out very quickly.
