What are my chances?
For the past few years, I have been fascinated by this image in the Plant Delights catalog: two guys standing under a towering clump of colocasia gigantea “Thailand Giant Strain.” I do realize that Buffalo is not Thailand and I probably don’t need or want any tender plant to achieve these proportions.
However. Now that I have a viable place to keep this type of cultivar alive and slowly growing over the winter, it might be fun to see how big it will get. Anyway, I ordered it, as well as colocasia Nancy’s Revenge (featured in a previous post), a jagged-leaved boehmeria, and a beautiful yellow-leaved clematis, all from Plant Delights.
