Gorgeous as always!! I've been waiting for your update this year. I love looking at your pictures.

Thanks for posting

Nice work mate!!
Is that a Homalomena to the bottom left of Jack?


RE: Jack's Giant Colocasia Update!

Boca joe, your plants make me "green" with envy. I followed your fertilizer schedule this past summer and had the best-looking plants I've ever had. I've also added Cordyline Paradise to my wish list after seeing the picture of yours. If I should ever be so lucky to see one here in northeast Texas, I'll grab it up. Congratulations on having the garden I strive to have.

Where did you get the giant colocasia? I live in florida and haven't seen one that tall here.
All your plants are just awesome!

RE: Jack's Giant Colocasia Update!

Hi -
thanks everyone for the kind comments.

Ed- that is a giant leafed hosta to the left , I have a Homalonia out back -it has green leaves.

Mokikat- Wayside Gardens sells them, I have also seen them on EBAY.
