Well, I gotta get one of those from you--if for no other
reason than to see what a true X. sagittifolia really is. Mr.
Boos and Eduardo seem to think what I have (and what is pictured
at the Mansell site) is X. violacea. That was my second thought
about what I have. If so, there are many cultivars here in
Houston. I recently went to a mom-and-pop place at which the
hubbie specializes in growing "rare" things, most of which he has
no idea as to the identity. He had a number of plants whose leaf
color (not to mention petiole color) ranged from the dark, almost
bluish green I have, to almost black. He thought they were Colocasia
forms. I couldn't argue with him, but the leaf shape and size were
so alike my X's that I feel these are forms of it.
