Here's an indoor / outdoor friendly plant! The Colocasia Painted Black is stunning in person. With leaves being the most important ornamental trait of Colocasias, the dark-black leaves of Painted Black are certain to grab your attention! 3-4’ clumps catch and reflect the light with a shimmering iridescence, offering a unique look between the black tops and the undersides of the leaves, which vary from maroon to gray in color. A moderate grower, Painted Black is easy to find a spot for inside, and outside can be used anywhere you would plant caladiums for that contrasting color only elephant ears can offer.
Currently the 2 Gallon pot size is available, standing stands approx 4'- 6" tall.
Loves humidity. Keep soil moist but not soggy. Hardy in zoned 8-11. Great for Foundation plantings, specimens, mass plantings, commercial landscapes, front or middle of the border, urban gardens, and containers.
