Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
A real show stopper! Heart shaped, velvety black foliage on jet black stems makes a dramatic display. Colocasia esculenta 'Black Magic' is a stunning tender perennial for moist or boggy soils. From midsummer it produces yellow flowers among the architectural foliage. This imposing plant makes a majestic specimen for exotic gardens, or planted at the edge of indoor pools. If grown outside, Colocasia esculenta 'Black Magic' should be lifted in autumn when the foliage dies back, and stored in damp sand or peat in a frost free position over winter. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 60cm (24"). Planting depth: Zone 1 in reliably moist or boggy soil.

Colocasia is a tender perennial and must be kept frost free. When growing outdoors, the tubers should be lifted in autumn when the foliage dies back. Clean the tubers of any old foliage and store them in damp sand or peat in a frost free position over winter.
Grow Colocasia in rich fertile, slightly acid soil that remains reliably moist. If planting at the edge of ponds, ensure that the crown sits above water level. Choose a position in full sun.
