Default Looking for cold-hardy alocasias

For ading some other big leaves plants to my Bananas garden am looking for Alocasia macrorhiza 'Lutea' and Alocasia macrorhiza 'Black Stem' and A. cucullata. Also for any other cold-hardy Alocasia to zone 9a (mediterranean climate) I also have regular A. macrorhiza, A. gageana and A. calidora.

Any suggestion?

Some alocasia experts here:
Alocasia sp. 'Golden'

I think steelviper is big into them as well unless I'm confusing him with someone else.

Hopefully someone who knows will chime in for you, Barna.
Apologies in advance if I am slow to reply to your PM. I suggest posting in the forums for support if you need something urgent.

Default Re: Looking for cold-hardy alocasias

Hello, I am brand new here and just looking around and getting to know where things are here. What zone are you in? I have Alocasia Sarawakensis and Alocasia Borneo Giant. Both of these are growing nicely here in z8. Borneo Giant is really rated for z9 but I have had one in the ground here for three years at z8 and it has been doing very well. I have several nicely rooted ones at about one foot tall. The same goes for the Sarawakensis.
