Description
Colocasia Sangria Tropicools has bluish green leaves with purple veining and red stems-truly unique! 4'-6'; full to part sun; winter hardiness zone 6-10.

Native to tropical Asia and Polynesia and considered an evergreen perennial tuberous herb Colocasia has given us lots of pleasure all summer long with its huge velvet-like textured dark green heart-shaped leaves that are lined with darker veins adding real drama to the shade garden near our pond. It's also spectacular as a sturdy backdrop for perennials in the flower border although we suspect in most full sun situations it will perform better if a soaker hose provides a little constant moisture. Excellent for water gardens when planted in a pot submerged in the pond. Bulb sizes differ depending on variety; plant 18 on center; whz 8-11. (zone 7 in damp soil with mulch) (HINT: The height seems to have everything to do with the richness of the soil and the available moisture.) Esculenta will arrive in bulb form; all of the rest are from tissue culture and will arive in ~4" pots ready for your garden or for a larger pot on the heat mat depending on where you live."
