Colocasia esculenta Black Magic
A widely grown tuberous perennial with beautiful, large leaf stalks supporting heart shaped purple/black leaves. Black Magic makes a wonderful statement when fully grown & the leaves are an excellent contrast to other green leaved varieties. A great plant for shallow ponds or wet boggy areas. Must not be allowed to dry out. Grows up to 1.5m in height & prefers semi shade. This variety is frost tender and should be sheltered from cold winds.
