Kona Coffee is a diminutive, sun loving Colocasia. It rarely gets taller than 2.5 feet and has a wonderful clumping habit that makes it perfect for contain pots or in beds where you want a statement piece that is not so tall. It has a unique leaf color that is not black, brown, or green but a mixture off all three depending on the light and the age of the leaf. It loves the water and needs to be kept relatively wet and prefers to be in the full sun.
