Nancy’s Revenge Colocasia esculenta The intricate and unusual 'Nancy's Revenge' is an exceptionally ornamental elephant ear that was discovered in the Caribbean by aroid enthusiast, Jerry Kranz, and named after his business partner, Nancy McDaniels. It may also be sold under the name, ‘Nancyana.’ Each striking leaf is solid green when it first emerges and eventually develops a broad, creamy colored, blotch along the central midvein that radiates into the peripheral veins

Mojito Colocasia esculenta If you're looking to add another wild and crazy elephant ear to your garden, drink up. (pronounced "Mo-he-toe") Named after the popular Cuban mixed drink.  You must grow this plant—if only to be able to tell everyone that you have a mojito waiting for them in the garden.  Its green leaves are set off by dark flecks and purple stems.  The speckled patterns, splotches, and streaks vary from leaf to leaf, so no two ever look quite the same.
