Colocasia Painted Black

Colocasia Painted Black is one of the darkest leaves available to date.  Enjoys full sun growing up to 36"-48" and are best grown in 70°+ soil or start indoors ahead of time on a heat mat prior to settling outdoors.  Native to tropical Asia and Polynesia and considered an evergreen perennial tuberous herb, This Aroid plant will give you lots of pleasure all summer long with its huge, velvet or glossy textured, dark green, heart-shaped leaves that are lined with darker veins. Spectacular as a sturdy backdrop for perennials in the flower border, although if you plant to set in most full sun situations, it will perform better if a soaker hose provides a little constant moisture. Excellent for water gardens when planted in a pot submerged in the pond.
