Overview

Black Magic Taro, also known as Elephant Ears, has burgundy stems and charcoal black leaves. The leaves themselves are arrow to heart shaped and resemble the ears of an elephant. The leaves grow up to 3 feet in length, while the plant may grow 2 to 4 feet tall and should be kept in 1 to 6 inches of water. This plant makes a dramatic accent to the edge of any pond and is also a great choice for a container garden.

Black Magic Taro is best planted in 5 gallon or larger containers. It does best when planted in partial shade, but will tolerate full sun if given plenty of water. It loves humid weather and lots of fertilizer and can be easily over wintered as a house plant if kept in a sunny window in a saucer of water. Zones 8-11 if kept outside year round.

Approximate Purchase Size: 12" to 18"
