Dear James,

I do NOT know for sure, but my GUESS is that they are from collections made
by Walter Pagels when he travelled throughout Indonesia and the Phillipines
several years ago.   Walter specialized in Aquatics, and introduced many new
varieties to W. cultivation.
They consist of Colocasia esculenta cultivars that are stoloniferous, and
the leaves and/or petioles are colored varoius shades of purple/dark
reddish/black.   Some are quite cold/cool resistant and the one I saw in
Cen. Florida was growing in a fish pond out doors in the 40`s.   They are
probably cultivated in their native lands for their edible leaves, and would
probably make a good calallo!    Speaking of which I shall be giving a talk
to the Begonia Soc. at Mounts Bot. Garden here in W.P.B., Florida this
Monday at 7.30 PM on edible ARoids, and hope to have samples of calallo,
dasheen, curried chicken w/ Xanthosoma, eddoes, etc. for tasting!!!

Good Growing,

Julius Boos
