Brilliant pink stems and rich green leaves with a pink dot in the center add vibrant color to any container or garden. Possibily the hardiest of all colocasias, 'Pink China' can tolerate zone 6 with a heavy layer of mulch as winter protection. It makes the perfect tropical plant for people in colder zones who don't want to move plants inside for the winter. 'Pink China' generally reaches 4' tall the first season and it spreads by underground rhizomes creating a larger display with each subsequent year.

Colocasia Pink China has shown to be extremely hardy and can over winter easily in zone 6 and possibly zone 5 or higher if mulched. This plant is possibly the toughest tropical we have ever seen. Colocasia Pink China is for anyone in cold climates trying to grow tropical plants. It is just as tough if not tougher than Musa Basjoo and looks amazing growing right next to it. This plant has green leaves with a pink dot in the center. The stems are a light baby pink. Foliage: Green with a pink dot in the center Flowers: Hooded flowers Height: 5 to 7 feet
