Description

Colocasia esculenta ‘White Lava’ is another stunning newly introduced, hardy Taro with large, up to 50cm, heat-shaped glossy green leaves in which the centre veining is a pure creamy-white.  This absolutely stunning colocasia is just as happy outdoors in a sheltered, dappled shade position throughout the summer or growing year-round as a remarkable conservatory or house plant. 

Although tropical in origin, colocasias do remarkably well outside in UK gardens throughout the warmer months; some even tolerating year-round cultivation outside in particularly well protected areas.  We think colocasias are essential if you like exotic or jungly plants.  Don’t be put off by the fact that they aren’t fully hardy as they can be easily over-wintered by either lifting the corms after the first frosts and storing them in soil, in a damp and frost free environment or alternatively they can be grown in a container and placed in a frost free location for the winter.

Please see our care guide for more information.

Larger Plants Not In Our Online Shop

If you would like to order a larger plant which does not appear in the online shop, please call us or send us an email and we will be able to give you a cost for delivery using our own transport. There have been many occasions where we have spoken to a customer on the phone about a large plant, then taken a digital photo of that particular plant and emailed it to them within the hour. This way you can make sure you are going to get exactly what you want.

Alternatively, we may convince you to come down and see us and we can easily help you to try to fit the plants you would like into your car - sometimes this has to be seen to be believed!
