Enjoy a Unique Black you don't see Often in Gardening
The Black Magic Elephant Ear gives you remarkable purplish-black leaves. Its dark hue gives you endless possibilities in your garden and landscape. Looks great along walkways, near doors, or upright in your garden. You can even pot them up on your patio for a unique look.
Looks Great Anywhere
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.
Makes a Great Houseplant Too!
Black Magic grows up to 2 feet tall, so it 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. 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.
