Black Magic Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta ‘Black Magic’ )

Large striking, dusty purple-black foliage contrasts spectacularly with bright-colored plants. Spreads freely in rich, wet soils; more slowly in dry, clay soil. Adds bold color and tropical flair to any garden. Herbaceous.

Care: 

Keep soil moist and add a controlled release fertilizer to the potting mix or garden soil. Remove dead or damaged leaves as required. In cooler climates, can be enjoyed outdoors, but move indoors before the threat of frost.
