Alocasia 'Portodora' and Other Elephant Ears
My daughter has moved into a 100-year old, restored home. It has practically no shrubbery around the front, just one lone azalea. There is a dark area beside the porch that gets practically no direct sunshine.
I saw a picture of Alocasia 'Portodoro' in a catalog and thought it would look great planted in that dark corner with other shade lovers planted in front. But the catalog says it needs sun to part sun, so maybe this one won't do.
Can anybody recommend a hardy, tall elephant ear type plant that likes shade?
