Alocasia odora, commonly referred to as giant elephant ear, Asian taro, or night-scented lily, is a native to East and Southeast Asia, and is an evergreen perennial. Growing up to two feet in leaf size and six to eight feet in plant height when given ideal conditions, this ornamental plant is popular for its majestic foliage.

It can be found grown both indoors and outdoors, usually in a pot or in a shaded garden, and while it seldom flowers indoors, it does produce large, peach-colored lily-shaped flowers when grown outside. However, as with other plants in the genus, alocasia odora is toxic when ingested, so take care when having small children or pets near.
