Alocasia Masquerade 'Mayan Mask' is an Elephant Ears with upright, deep green leaves with light green veins and burgundy reverses.
The upright elephant ears are different than the smaller, more lax Colocasia. Alocasia are large plants with thick, sculpted, glossy green, strongly upright leaves held on rigid stems. Masquerade 'Mayan Mask' also has a nice shine to the deep green leaves with light green veins and stunning burgundy reverses. It will form a large, fast-growing specimen for the garden or containers. Protect in winter with a deep mulch where hardy or as a houseplant in colder zones.
