Mrs. James H. Smith of Greenville like to grow plants in her back yard. Early this spring she planted an "Elephant Ear" plant which in its natural habitat grows very large. Mrs. Smith holds two of the giant leaves on one of the two plants she has. The leaves measure 32 inches wide and 47 inches long. According to a Greenville nurseryman, this size is very unusual for the eastern N.C. area since the plant is found usually in the tropics.
