Lime Zinger Elephant's Ear(Xanthosoma aurea 'Lime Zinger')Lesser-known but just as spectacular is golden-leaved elephant's ear (Xanthosoma aurea 'Lime Zinger'). Belonging to the same botanical family but to a different genus, this selection deploys steroidal foliage (each leaf grows to 24 inches) of a uniform chartreuse green that seems to glow in even the dimmest light. Even more so than Colocasia, Xanthosoma requires lots of heat to perform — it sneers at my maritime climate. Another genus of elephant's ear to watch for is Alocasia.USDA zones: 9 to 11Water requirement: Wet, moist soilLight requirement: Full to partial sunMature size: 2 1/2 to 4 feet tallSeasonal interest: Summer, fallWhen to plant: Spring or summer

Lime Zinger Ele­phant's Ear (Xan­tho­soma au­rea 'Lime Zinger') Lesser-known but just as spec­tac­u­lar is golden-leaved ele­phant's ear (Xan­tho­soma au­rea 'Lime Zinger'). Be­long­ing to the same botan­i­cal fam­ily but to a dif­fer­ent genus, this se­lec­tion de­ploys steroidal fo­liage (each leaf grows to 24 inches) of a uni­form char­treuse green that seems to glow in even the dimmest light. Even more so than Colo­ca­sia, Xan­tho­soma re­quires lots of heat to per­form — it sneers at my mar­itime cli­mate. An­other genus of ele­phant's ear to watch for is Alo­ca­sia. USDA zones: 9 to 11 Wa­ter re­quire­ment: Wet, moist soil Light re­quire­ment: Full to par­tial sun Ma­ture size: 2 1/2 to 4 feet tall Sea­sonal in­ter­est: Sum­mer, fall When to plant: Spring or sum­mer
