TARO - BLACK MAGIC

Black Magic Taro Colocasia esculentaBy Photo by David J. Stang CC BY-SA 4.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Colocasia Esculenta Black
Description

A highly ornamental pond plant with burgundy stems and leaves, it is also called Elephant Ears due to the shape of the leaves. They are an ideal edge plant for ponds where they can be submerged to a depth of 15cm. Best grown in pots so they do not overcrowd and dominate the pond. They can also be grown in moist, partially shaded spots, in the garden although they will tolerate full sun if they receive plenty of water. Black magic taro also make an attractive house plant. Weed warning: Take care to ensure it does not spread into waterways.
