Alocasia Odora Alocasia Odora is an ornamental plant with big leaves and provides an instant "tropical look" to the yard. Striking foliage with large, deep green upright leaves provides for a dramatic effect in a container or the garden.

Odora can withstand very low temperatures, down to about 0°F (zone 7a). In colder climates you can “chop the top” and bring it indoors for the following spring. Alocasia Odora has big upright leaves that can be more than 3 ft (1 m) long. This is a gorgeous and easy to grow elephant ear!
