The scoop on Colocasia White Lava

Huge leaves and a stunning creamy white vein design make this colocasia a standout. White Lava grow to three feet tall with leaves waving atop purple stems and decorated with a purple "V" shaped kiss. The white veining hides early in the season and beomes more pronounced as the leaves grow larger and the summer progresses. White Lava is a stunning clumping elephant ear variety, with none of the "running" root issues of it's predecessor, Nancy's Revenge.
