Whether you enjoy dabbling in indoor gardening or have an exotic-themed garden, you’ll love this this amazing Colocasia esculenta ‘Black Magic’ and it’s striking, bold architectural foliage, commonly known as black Elephant Ears. This dark character has two uses in one - start it off in your home and enjoy its lush foliage as an indoor plant. Then, as soon as summer arrives, move it out to the garden in pots or plant it into shady or damp borders and enjoy the magnificent, tropical display!

The amazing dark (near-black) foliage of Colocasia esculenta ‘Black Magic’ makes this is a particularly good variety for growing in the summer garden where is can provide a stunning, contrasting backdrop to accent surrounding flowers. They prefer a rich, moist planting area in partial shade and are just as happy in pots as they are in borders. If you have a bright, airy home, the ebony foliage makes for a striking feature for indoor use too!

Our Colocasia bulbs are grown and cultivated in Florida, USA.
