Alocasia Calidora

Alocasia Calidora produces big ribbed foliage that looks like it could have fanned Cleopatra once upon a time. Its upright, arrow-shaped leaves sit on larger-than-life petioles and can grow up to 6 feet long and 3 feet wide. In full sun, you can expect a V-shaped clump, 2 feet wide at its base and 6 feet wide on top. It looks great in a pot or looming over a flower bed.
