We are pleased to offer our collection of the hitchhiker elephant ear, Remusatia vivipara, from near the North Vietnam town of Son La where we found it growing in rocky, shaded slopes with Amorphophallus yunnanensis and Disporopsis longifolia. The large, often solitary elephant ear-like, olive green leaf is backed with large purple blotches...most prominent on the new leaves. Late in the season, mature plants produce bizarre Viagra-induced, rigidly upright stolons clothed with small tubercles. The sticky hitchhiking tubercles will produce new clones of the original plant. Mature plants produce an attractive bright yellow flower in late spring before the leaves emerge. The foliage, however, will not emerge before mid-June, so chill out! A dry spot in the winter months is the key to survival in the ground. In containers, allow the plant to go dormant and keep it above freezing.
