Dark Colocasia Bulbs for Sale | Diamond Head Elephant Ear

We can't help but wonder if renowned breeder John Cho knew just how magnificent the results would be of crossing a black Elephant Ear with a glossy one. Well, either way, we're glad he did because this variety is simply spectacular! Colocasia Diamond Head produces shiny leaves in a shade of purple so dark they almost appear black and vivid burgundy-red stems.

Super fast-growing and dramatic, this tropical plant thrives in wet or boggy soils and will even tolerate being submerged in water features. Unlike its other dark relatives, Diamond Head yields the deepest, most lustrous leaves in full, bright sun. Plant outside or in containers, and for those in colder climates, bring the bulbs indoors over winter. Enjoy!
