Colocasia ‘Royal Hawaiian Hawaiian Punch’

Colocasia ‘Hawaiian Punch’ is an outstanding addition to the Royal Hawaiian colocasia series. It boasts fresh, tropical-green foliage with attractive red margins and red veins on the underside of foliage. Everything is held together on glossy red stems. The Royal Hawaiian colocasias have been bred to be sturdy garden performers and container specimens. If planted in the ground, ‘Hawaiian Punch’ will reach a mature height of around 3 feet, making a glorious statement in the garden. It continues to branch as it matures, creating a wonderful compact habit. If used in containers for the patio, just remove old leaves and ‘Hawaiian Punch’ makes two. It offers an easy-care tropical to the consumer. This series is not invasive, and it’s hardy to Zone 7b. Each variety in the series is disease-resistant with fabulous foliage and stem interest, and its tidy clumping habit makes it a welcome addition in any garden or landscape.
