Description / Colocasia Black Stem

Primarily grown for its spectacular foliage, Colocasia esculenta 'Fontanesii' is commonly known as Black Stem Elephant Ear. It is a frost tender perennial with large, heart shaped, blue green leaves adorned with dark green veins and a shiny black cast. They sit atop striking purple-black leaf stalks. The leaves of Colocasia point dramatically toward the ground. Small flowers of pale yellow are infrequently produced in the summer but are charming nonetheless. Strong and fast growing this Elephant Ear is a hassle free plant that makes an unforgettable focal point and brings distinct tropical flare to the landscape, water garden, or even a large container.
