At Léon & George, we’re committed to delivering the most beautiful plants straight from our nurseries. We’re constantly refreshing our inventory with the highest quality plants available. Starting today, we’ll be featuring the latest Plant of the Moment.

Our star right now is the majestic Elephant's Ear Plant.

The Alocasia, or Elephant's Ear as it is commonly called, gets its name from its flat, jumbo-sized, heart-shaped leaves. Elephant's Ear plants make a great decorative piece for a spacious room and instantly bring a lush, tropical vibe. They thrive best with indirect sunlight, humid settings and moist soil.

A few fun facts:

  • The entire plant is edible, but only when cooked

  • A popular houseplant since the 1950s, it can live as long as you do with the right care¹

  • In Asia the plant is known as “the great protector”

If you’re convinced and would like a little bit more nature in your life, try Léon & George. We have a great selection of easy-care plants and beautiful pots and deliver them right to your door in the Los Angeles & San Francisco areas.
