    Hi @John . I’m always weary of labels hardiness ratings, it all depends which part of the world the plant labels were intended for. That said, I’ve heard of some unexpected Colocasia and Alocasia surviving UK winters recently. If your are going to give it a go I would recommend that you ensure it has good drainage to prevent the root zone freezing solid during a cold spell.
