Elephant ears bring to mind lush, tropical forests, adding drama to both gardens and containers. The most recognized forms have heart- or arrow-shaped leaves (often oversized) with decorative veining, inspiring the common name elephant ears. No plant satisfies the craving for a taste of the tropics like elephant ears. Popular in Victorian times, they have enjoyed a rebirth in the recent craze for zonal-denial, exotic plants.
WARNING: This is a toxic plant! Kids and animals should stay away from it.
