Tea Cup gets its name from its up-turned leaves that look like they form a cup. This colocasia’s foliage is a deep green color and can often look like it is tinged with brown. Its leaves have a lovely, lustrous quality to them, and they perch on top of delicate-looking marron/black petioles. With it reaching heights of up to seven feet, this beauty makes a wonderful centerpiece in your landscape or water garden. This colocasia loves water and can have its roots fully submerged in a pond. It is a must have for any true colocasia lover.
