This photo appears to depict a bloom of a Xanthosoma plant, possibly X. violaceum, not a bloom on Colocasia esculenta. If you could show a picture of the leaves on this same plant, I could confirm the ID.

LariAnn: I probably posted this in the wrong place. The picture is several years old, and for the last two winters, the leaves have been killed by the frost. Actually, my late brother dug the mother plant up in a friend's vacant lot, so it could be just about anything....As soon as I can get a decent picture of the leaves, I will post if for you.

Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

Plants Admin Emeritus

I've moved this photo to the general Xanthosoma entry for the time being.
