This spectacular form of the hardy elephant ear comes to us from a garden in Anniston, Alabama where it was 'discovered' by SPEPS member Hayes Jackson. We can attest that this clumper has both phenomenal vigor as well as hardiness. Each 3' long leaf has incredibly scalloped edges that set it apart from typical Colocasia esculenta. In growth habit, it performs here as a clumper, unlike the more stoloniferous forms. Colocasia 'Ruffles' has also multiplied faster than any elephant ear we have grown, with clumps multiplying from 1 to 100 divisions in twelve months.
