Alocasia Wentii. Hardy Elephant Ears. 

The Alocasia Wentii is a very impressive and ornamental plant. Large leaves which can reach up to a foot in length are deep green on top with a spectacularly contrasting metallic purple-bronze colour to their undersides. This impressive foliage provides a wonderful backdrop to richly coloured flowers in any garden. Frost tender it is perfect for growing in containers and placing into a border through summer to give it a tropical look and then moving indoors through winter. Alternatively their spectacular foliage makes them a striking houseplant.
