(West Indian Kale) Colocasia Coffee Cups is an exciting new elephant ear that has black stems and black-tinted veining on dark green leaves. Each leaf forms an upright cup that will hold water, hence it's name. Colocasia Coffee Cups will make a stunning statement in any large container combination as it grows to heights of 3-5'. It also loves wet conditions and can be used as a water plant growing best in full sun to part shade locations. Colocasia Coffee Cups is adaptable as a houseplant but please note that it can be toxic to pets.

I could not believe how fast Colocasia 'Coffee Cups' grows. I planted 2- 4.5" pots in this container in late May and by the 4th of July this is what I had. A gorgeous, huge planter!! They love it hot and that is what they got in the middle of my back yard.
