Cultivar Notes - 'Mojito'
Each leaf of this Elephant Ear is like an artistís canvas, no two are exactly alike. Splashed, splattered, sprayed, marbled, splotched--take your pick of adjectives to describe the unique pattern of lime green, chartreuse, purple, and near-black colors on each huge, arrow shaped leaf. Even its stout stems are colorful: light pink with dark rattlesnake-like stripes. The colors tend to be most vivid when sited in partial shade.
This plant will grow well in large containers or in the ground as long as consistent moisture is available. In the ground, the leaves can grow a whopping 2' long by 18" wide and the plant can reach 6' tall. This plant will also grow in shallow water.
