Answer

While this cultivar is not identified in the photo, I was able to find it in an online catalog -- Florida Hill Nursery. It is  Colocasia "Blue Hawaiian" elephant ear. According to Florida Hill Nursery it is 5 - 16 " tall, has large green leaves with prominent bluish-purple veins, an undulating bluish-purple margin, matte finish and semi-glossy dark burgundy petioles (stems). It's really stunning! See link below from Florida Hill Nursery.  -- Janet Evans
