Fast-Growing Tropical Treasure

Even novice gardeners can grow the spectacular Persian Palm Elephant Ear (Alocasia ‘Alidora’) with little effort. In a single season, huge fan-shaped leaves will tower above your head to add a tropical flair to your garden, patio, or poolside. All you have to do is plant a bulb-like structure that resembles a potato; keep it watered – then sit back and watch the show!

A Versatile Beauty
Persian Palm Elephant Ear is not defined by a single landscape use. This plant is so versatile that you can grow it indoors or out! It quickly and easily rises to the challenge of filling a bare spot, and you’re sure to have a perfect location where you want a fast-growing, showy plant to really make an impact.

Fantastic foliage. The leaves of Persian Palm Elephant Ear don’t droop as other types of elephant ears do – they are held strongly upright for an elegant presentation. Even the texture of the foliage is dramatic. The leaves are beautifully textured with a heavily corrugated and almost pleated appearance.

Awesome container plant. Container gardening is the easy solution to many gardening challenges, and Persian Palm Elephant Ear is terrific in containers! This is no shrinking violet of a plant; if you want an impressive display from a rapidly growing potted plant, your search has ended. Just be sure to use a heavy container that will not topple over because of high winds or top-heavy plant growth.

Landscape or houseplant. One Persian Palm Elephant Ear will certainly make a bold statement, but if your landscape design begs for an even bolder look, you’ll definitely want more than one plant. If you’re growing Persian Palm Elephant Ear in containers, you’ll need one for each large pot you want to plant. Although it can grow up to 10 feet in the landscape, a height of around 6 feet is more common in most settings. In the home, it can still easily reach this size, although smaller containers may restrict its growth. So be sure to plant Persian Palm Elephant Ear where it has plenty of room to grow – whether it’s outside or indoors!

Year-Round Care
A sunny garden spot will keep your Persian Palm Elephant Ear in tiptop shape. An optimal location is one that receives morning sun and afternoon shade. Plants enjoy moist soil that drains well. By applying a slow-release fertilizer once in spring, you’ll help this plant reach its full growing potential. As a tropical plant, Persian Palm Elephant Ear is a perennial only in the warm climates of USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 through 11. It is marginally hardy in Zone 8, which means it may (or may not) come back in spring after dying to the ground in winter. If you live outside this plant’s hardiness range, it’s so easy to grow it in a container outside during warm weather, cut the plant to its base before fall’s first frost, and store the bulb-like tuber indoors for the winter. When the weather warms in spring, and all danger of frost has passed, simply replant it outside for the next season’s dazzling display!
