(Golden Trumpet, Henderson's Golden Trumpet, Yellow Allamanda)

Yellow allamanda is a massive climbing evergreen shrub native to tropical South America. Its cultivar 'Hendersonii' has especially large, orange-yellow, bronze-tinged flowers with white-spotted throats. The fragrant, loosely clustered, trumpet-shaped blooms appear nearly year-round in tropical conditions. Spiny seed capsules follow the flowers. The coarse oval leaves are leathery and glossy. The long, scrambling stems will climb any structures available, or will grow as a freestanding shrub if their...

(Golden Trumpet, Lemon Sprite Golden Trumpet, Yellow Allamanda)

Yellow allamanda is a massive climbing evergreen shrub native to tropical South America. Named for its relatively small flowers, leaves, and stature, the cultivar 'Lemon Sprite' bears loose clusters of fragrant, trumpet-shaped, yellow blooms nearly year-round. Spiny seed capsules follow the flowers. The oval leaves are leathery and glossy. The scrambling stems will climb any structures available, or will grow as a freestanding shrub if their tips are regularly pruned.

This handsome shrub requires...

(Alocasia, Elephant Ear)

Alocasia is a genus of about 70 huge-leaved species of tropical plants native to the warm, moist areas of southern Asia. They are usually perennial evergreens and have large rhizomes (underground lateral stems) or bulbs. The leaves are roughly oval with lobes at the base. Some are arrow-shaped and all have the petiole (leaf stem) attached inside the leaf edge. Large, prominent, variously colored veins often decorate the leaves. The leaves top long, variously-hued petioles which grow directly...

(Alocasia, Elephant Ear)

Beautiful dark leaves are the shining glory of Alocasia ‘Black Velvet.’ This smaller tropical elephant ear is adapted to the warm, moist areas of southern Asia. Some list this selection as a cultivar of Alocasia reginula but the parentage of this Borneo discovery is still unclear.

Evergreen in the tropics, 'Black Velvet' is a dwarf Alocasia, which grows via rhizomes (underground lateral stems) that branch to form large clumps. The leaves are roundly heart-shaped, dark greenish...

(Alocasia, Elephant Ear, Hilo Beauty Taro)

The mottled leaves of this stunning Alocasia are unlike any other. Each huge, heart-shaped leaf is rich green with beautiful, irregular, greenish yellow blotches and gentle wavy edges. During the growing season, 'Hilo Beauty' produces spathe and spadex flowers, but these are not particularly showy and overshadowed by glowing foliage of this tropical gem. The parentage of this cultivar is unknown.

Ornamental taro is best grown in partial sun to partial shade with protection from scorching...

(Elephant Ear, Portodora Elephant Ear)

The eye-catching, upward facing leaves of 'Portodora' are rich green, spade-shaped and have wavy edges. This hybrid seedling resulting from the cross between Alocasia odora and Alocasia portei makes a superb architectural component to the shade border. During the growing season, spathe flowers appear but are generally overshadowed by this hybrid's majestic and imposing foliage. Stems are thick, fleshy and seemingly muscular as they hold the massive wavy-edged leaves.

The Portodora...

(Alocasia, Elephant Ear)

Named for the shape of its striking leaves, this large evergreen perennial makes a conversation piece for garden or greenhouse. Its slowly creeping underground rhizomes produce erect clumps of long-stalked leaves that have two broad, wing-like lobes and a terminal tail-like appendage, the whole resembling a stingray. The shiny, leather, ruffled leaves are rich green with paler undersides. Inconspicuous greenish blossoms with a central finger-like spadix and a clasping petal-like bract (spathe) may...
