Pharaohs Mask ™ (Colocasia, variety ‘COPHAMA’) PP33772 is one of those hybrids I have worked years to produce. Breeding off of a single mutation found in a species collected by Hayes Jackson called Col. Dark Star. This species had a odd dark V vein down the center of each leaf. Through breeding with this variety I was able to exaggerate this trait to what we now have in Col. Pharaoh’s Mask.

Pharaohs Mask ™ (Colocasia, variety ‘COPHAMA’) PP33772 grows to 4 to 5 feet tall. The petioles are dark black and each leaf is dark green with a nice reflective sheen. The main attraction is the highly contrasting black veins that are raised off the leaf. These bulky veins protrude off the leaf giving it a 3D effect. As the leaves mature the center of the leaves push out and the edges pull back giving it a uniquely shape and texture leaf. Pharaohs Mask ™ (Colocasia, variety ‘COPHAMA’) PP33772 has a clumping habit and does great in containers or in landscapes. A nice cluster of them make for a big impact with the stripped foliage and dark stems that is unlike any elephant ear on the market.

Pharaohs Mask ™ (Colocasia, variety ‘COPHAMA’) PP33772 can be grown as an aquatic plant or in the ground.  Pharaohs Mask ™ (Colocasia, variety ‘COPHAMA’) PP33772 is hardy to zone7 and up and will be tested here in zone 6 for hardiness in the near future. Plants do best in full to part sun in rich organic soil. Pharaohs Mask ™ (Colocasia, variety ‘COPHAMA’) PP33772 starts off with dark green foliage and a small dark mid-vein as it matures the veins will get more dramatic.
