Whether you're an indoor gardening enthusiast or have a penchant for exotic-themed landscapes, you'll be captivated by the allure of Colocasia esculenta 'Black Magic', with its dramatic, bold architectural foliage. This dark-hued gem serves a dual purpose: initially gracing your indoor spaces with its lush foliage and later transitioning to the outdoor garden scene as summer sets in. Whether potted or planted in shady, damp borders, its tropical splendour will surely impress!

The striking, nearly black foliage of Colocasia esculenta 'Black Magic' makes it an exceptional choice for enhancing the summer garden, providing a stunning, contrasting backdrop to complement surrounding blooms.

Colocasias are relatively simple to cultivate and highly versatile, thriving in various soil types. They benefit from regular watering to encourage lush foliage growth. In colder climates, it's crucial to ensure well-drained compost to prevent waterlogging. These plants grow well in both shade and sunlight.

Planting Time: February - June

Max Height: 150-200cm
