Dark Tropical Foliage All Summer Long

The Black Magic is an Elephant Ear variety that features remarkable purplish-black leaves. Its dark hue gives you endless possibilities in your garden and landscape.

This Elephant Ear is a tuberous, upward-growing plant displaying thick burgundy-colored stalks that support huge heart-shaped leaves. Deep purple, rich and velvety smooth, Black Magic's generous leaves can measure up to 2 feet long and are 18 inches wide or more.

The Black Magic instantly lends any landscape an exotic, tropical flair. This fast-growing plant looks spectacular and performs superbly in the margins of a water feature such as a pond or lagoon-style pool. It is great as an accent plant for beds and borders.

Maturing to heights of 3-6 feet with a similar spread, Black Magic is perfectly suited to life in a container as a pampered houseplant. Place in a window with plenty of light, water regularly and watch it shine. As a word of caution to those with pets or small children, this plant is toxic if ingested, so plant it in a secured spot.

Black Magic thrives in the ground in growing zones 7-11... however, if you grow it in a container, it will thrive anywhere in the US. This dramatic beauty will look fabulous on your deck or patio.

Heat-tolerant and pest/disease resistant, Black Magic Elephant Ear is an outstanding, low-maintenance treasure. They're extremely popular, so order yours now while they're still in stock.
