Xanthosoma albo-marginata ‘ Mickey Mouse Taro

Xanthosoma_Albo3300

Xanthosoma albo-marginata is a very unusual take on the “just plain green” Taro. This Taro has an irregular variegation pattern, first emerging yellow with light gray green. As the leaves mature the green color deepens and the cream fades to white, very striking! This Taro is known as the Mickey Mouse Taro because the shape of the leaves look similar to the Disney character. At the tip of the leaf a pocket with a tail forms, providing further interest, and it also holds water like a cup. At maturity this Taro can reach 4-5′ tall.
