Colocasia, or Elephant's Ear plants, should thrive in the area you describe. These plants grow from tubers and the tubers should be available now at your local Home Depot. They are often not even packaged but sold from barrels in the garden center. They look like big, round potatoes. Ask the staff and they'll point you to them.
