|Also called Purple Elephant Ear and Imperial Taro. This leaf looks
like a polished antique flea market treasure. The coloring of the leaves
varies as the season progresses, and by Fall some of the leaves may be
completely velvet-black. It is unclear why this plant is so productive,
because after an established plant revives in the Spring, little offsets
suddenly and unexplainably appear everywhere in your yard.
Emerges in early June. This black-leaved elephant ear has vibrant green veins. Proliferates in moist soil but will also thrive in regular garden soil. Plant in light shade for deeper black coloring. Zones 7-10.
