Alocasia

Alocasia is a genus of about 70 species in the Araceae family. These rhizomatous or bulbous perennials occur in tropical humid climates of southeast Asia and a few other places. They are grown as ornamentals for their large heart-shaped or arrowhead-shaped leaves, sometimes called African Masks or Elephant's Ears. These plants are variable in size, height, shape, and leaf color.


Below is a table of the species and hybrids of Alocasia currently included on the PBS wiki. For an overview of these, see the page Alocasia Overview.
