Hey guys, one of my favorite warm weather plants are big and beautiful Elephant Ears!
Now the scientific names for these plants, because there are several varieties, include... Taro, Cocoyam, Dasheen, Chembu, and Eddoe. Interesting huh? Another thing I can tell you is that they are super easy to grow, and all you need is warm and humid weather. Literally my hubby planted ours by sticking bulbs right in the ground. Aren't they great next to our screened porch?
Above is a view from the inside of our porch. And here are few more Inspiration photos below...
So if your backyard or garden is in need of tropical update, think Elephant Ears! They grow all Summer long and thrive in wet/humid climates. And because of their large size, they make great focal points for gardens, screened porches and even decks.
