Re: Colocasia esculenta
Concerning C. esculenta, does anyone know what sp. of colocasia or supposed
"variety" of esculenta are the tubers commonly sold in garden centers as
"Elephant Ears"? They are not commonly grown here in Florida but I seem them
in many yards "up North" in the summer. They look like a large form of C.
esculenta and are fairly invasive like esculenta is.(It is an invasive weed in
many Florida lakes, rivers, etc.) The only names I have seen on the packages
is Colocasia sp. Thanks for any info.
