Black Coral Taro  (Colocasia) is one of the most exotic looking plants you will find anywhere in the world! Very large, oily-black, fluted elephant ears add drama when planted in containers and placed on the patio, as a focal point in your pond, or in rows along a driveway or in front of your home. Black Coral Taro is an amazing plant and is a SHOWSTOPPER!  Grows to 42" tall in part sun to full shade.

Height  Grows to 42" tall

Width  18 - 24" spread or wider

Sunlight Requirements  Part sun to part shade (Morning sun is best)

Moisture Requirements  Moist soil or up to 3" of water above the top of the container in the pond

Zone Hardy to zone 8

Plant Black Coral Taro in moist soil in your bog or terrestrial garden or place in a container using heavy loam soil and place in your pond with an inch or two of water above the top of the pot. Plant in light sunlight (morning sun) to full shade. Black Coral Taro can be planted in loam soil for the pond or in rich, composted soil for your terrestrial garden. When planting these beauties in your flower garden, keep in mind that they will grow to 42" tall--so place them behind shorter varieties! Water during dry spells and fertilize once a month throughout the summer months.  Fertilize your pond plants with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabbs + Humates (June through August). In the north, taro bulbs must be lifted after the first, light frost, remove spent foliage and overwinter indoors in dark, cool, dry conditions. Replant in spring after all danger of frost has passed. Add drama and excitement to your water garden this year with Black Coral Taro!
