The most vigorous and largest growing black-leaved Colocasia to date. Imagine Colocasia 'Black Magic' super-sized. The heart-shaped leaves emerge purple/green and turn a lustrous black. Their potential size is quite remarkable and in the right conditions can reach 1.5m in length and 1m wide. Extremely fast growing Capable of reaching 2.6m in a season. In our UK summer they could easily reach 1m outdoors - double that in a greenhouse.
Grow in a sheltered position in moist but well-drained, very rich soil in sun/part shade.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 2.6m (less in UK)
Spread 3m
