Colocasia Black Coral

A jet-black taro plant for your water feature or patio
Colocasia like you've never seen it before! Black Coral features the signature heart-shaped leaves of your favorite elephant ear plants, in jet black, with a semi-wrinkled texture that adds a sophistication to the garden. Depending upon climate, these plants may produce tall-stemmed, yellow flowers. Colocasia is highly heat-tolerant, and Black Coral Colocasia can be planted in up to six inches of water. Perfect for your favorite water feature, or for a humid and well-watered spot in the garden or on the patio. Frost-tender, colocasia should be planted in containers or, in the ground, lifted overwinter in zones 3-8.
