Sting Ray Elephant Ear

Alocasia 'Sting Ray'

One of a kind foliage! The unique inward curving leaves on long, graceful stems resemble that of a gliding stingray. Ribbed, emerald green foliage provides a lush tropical effect, perfect near a pond or poolside. An excellent container plant for the patio or deck, or use indoors as an atrium accent. Evergreen above 40° F.
