Alocasia California 

If you want an instant tropical impact in your rainforest themed garden that survives hard freezes and is easily dug up overwintered as a bulb/corm further north where the ground freezes, the "California" elephant ear is the plant for you.  Its also called dwarf elephant ear, which to me is a misnomer.  Although "California" has 15 inch leaves while the full sized varieties of alocasias can have leaves up to 5 feet wide, the clumping nature of this plant makes up for the lack in leaf size.

Slightly moist, but well drained soils and part sun seems to grow the best plants.
