Freaky Elephant Ear

on July 3, 2019

I have been growing elephant ears for years now. This is the first time I have ever seen this.

When I first noticed this, I was inside looking at the plant, thinking this two leaves that are just entertwined. I went out to look.

So it is two leaves on one stem. Never seen that in all the years of growing these bulbs.

Elephant ear bulbs seem to do real well for me. I have grown and given away bulbs for years now. Hopefully some of them are still growing in Italy. I know that the family that bought our property in Virginia still plant elephant ears every year. Ohhh, I don’t know if that is the legacy that I want to leave….

    Looks like it is a proliferation. Have been seeing a lot of it this year in roses. Blaming it on the freaky weather this year. Doesn’t hurt the plant. It is just a genetic mutation.
