Description

Alocasia odora ‘California’, more commonly known as the Upright Elephant Ear or Night Scented Elephant Ear, is known for its stand out paddle shaped leaves and its fragrant blooms whose perfume is extra intense and beautiful at night. Alocasia odora ‘California’ is a tuberous plant that is native to East and South East Asia and has long been used as a remedy for the common cold in Northern Vietnam.

This stunning plant can turn any garden into a tropical oasis, with its large glossy leaves and hardy stems adding a burst of bright green to any plant bed or pot. As the bold, tropical leaves stand upright, they can shed excess water easily, whilst also allowing companion plants to grow underneath. In their preferred conditions of a tropical or subtropical climate, it can grow to its full height of over 15 ft, but in more temperate climates it will be significantly smaller, reaching up to 5 ft in just one summer. These heat loving plants will happily grow in full sunlight or partial shade and will require regular watering during their growth season.

The 6” tuber of the Elephant Ear should be planted in Spring in a nutritious/moist soil and will do well with weekly doses of fertilizer in growing season. The blooms of the Alocasia odora ‘California’, which appear in late Spring right through to Fall, are a subtle pale peach, which will certainly not go unnoticed. When in bloom, the flowers release a wonderful sweet perfume, which is best enjoyed in the evening, when the fragrance intensifies and carries wonderfully on the breeze.
