Alocasia are a group of ornamental plants known for their foliage more than their flowers. Some have very large leaves with striking colors. Native to many areas of the world, these exotic plants give a different flair to the garden. Many have tubers or rhizomes below the ground. Some species are not cold hardy at all while others can live easily in Southern California. Some species are dwarf tropical plants while others get up to about 10 feet. Most prefer part day sun although a few take full sun. Also, most prefer a frost-free area.
