Colocasia x 'Diamondhead'.....big sister and little sister

Last year we planted Diamondhead and Blue Hawaii colocasias below the wall at the GCA Circle. Rather than dig them in the fall, I blew leaves down the hill till they were level with the wall. Two feet? This spring when we removed the leaves we saw that most of the plants had survived. Well, lacking the courage of our convictions, because none had resprouted by the first week of May, we availed ourselves of Brad's generosity and put out plants he'd overwintered. Now, come the second week of June, our truant survivors have begun to reappear. Though they're still much smaller than their newly planted siblings, they will catch up.
