Colocasia Black Magic

If your landscape offers a moist area with good light and includes space for a big plant (and we do mean big!), count yourself lucky. Black Magic is the majestic foliage plant that youve seen popping up in all the gardening magazines and its quite impressive. Originating in tropical Asia, Black Magic is related to the taro plant that has been a food staple for generations. Fast growing, this is a good choice for estate-size containers with bright annuals, gracing the edge of a pond or towering in a warm greenhouse. Note: Colocasia is a plant that is poisonous if ingested raw - please don't eat.
