Elephant Ear ‘Sumo’ (Alocasia hybrid)

Big and bold, Elephant Ear ‘Sumo’ makes a dynamic statement in a large pot or as a landscape specimen. This easy grower reaches 5-6’ the first year and 8-10’ tall by the second year. The dark, upward-pointing, green leaves are huge – up to 3-4’ long when fully mature – and they reach 2.5’ across. The back sides of the leaves are light green with purple veins and highlights. The dark leaf stems are reddish-black. ‘Sumo’ is a hybrid between Alocasia ‘Portora’ and ‘Purple Cloak’ and seems to have the zone 7b hardiness of ‘Portora.’ The thick green leaves remain attractive the whole summer long. We highly recommend ‘Sumo’ Elephant Ear for its vigorous nature and commanding presence.
