Considered a type of aquatic and invasive plants this specimen is very appropriate as decorative plant when you can have a fountain. This film aims to display painstaking details of its leaves, stems and how it propagates. As all the films of this channel this one will also aim to only visually display it and let you have ideas for outdoor gardening.

Most gardeners like plants that lend a tropical feel to the landscape. Some of the easiest tropical plants to grow that have a big impact are elephant ears. There are two species commonly found in our Mississippi landscapes, Alocasia and Colocasia, and they're both called elephant ears. But today we're just going to look at Colocasia, which is also called taro. These all feature big leaves and big texture, but they're not all green. In fact, there are Colocasia with black leaves. A couple of fantastic examples are Black Coral and Diamond Head. Diamond Head has jet black leaves that have a texture resembling corrugation. Black Coral has large glossy chocolaty black leaves with finely ruffled edges. The large green leaves of Blue Hawaii feature prominent bluish-purple veins. The edges are undulating and the dark burgundy petioles are glossy. Colocasia Mojito adds a refreshing color splash to the garden with its medium greens leaves speckled with dark flecks of purple. One of what I think is the prettiest of the Colocasia is Red Stem Taro. This plant has beautiful green leaves and bright red petioles. Colocasia can be readily identified because of the downward pointing foliage. Be sure to grow in the full sun and provide consistent soil moisture; in fact they can be grown in standing water. Going to the tropics may not be possible, but we can think we live there with Colocasia in the landscape. I'm horticulturist Gary Bachman for Southern Gardening.

Ann bought an Elephant Ear corm (aka "taro" or "colocasia esculenta") and the leaves have been growing this summer. When we lived in Kansas City over 20 years ago we enjoyed driving by yards that has these in this landscape, and now we finally have one. This is a video of how it looks in our front garden as of Saturday, July 22, 2017. Because of the coldness of our zone (Zone 5B), we have to dig the corm up before winter and store it in the garage. It's not much work in order to have this beautiful plant on display every year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colocasia_esculenta https://hortnews.extension.iastate.edu/2005/5-4-2005/elephantear.html * If you like what I do, and want to support, please consider making a donation via Paypal: https://www.paypal.me/ambientrushton Follow Mark Rushton's ambient/electronic music at Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/3o7In5aHAnzK7WYGHY5Khx Buy Mark Rushton ambient/electronic music downloads at Bandcamp: https://markrushton.bandcamp.com/

Colocasia Black Sapphire Gecko ppaf is a new hybrid that grows to 4 feet tall. Large black shinny leaves that have an odd sheen. The undersides of the leaves are a dark maroon color. Grows best in full sun with rich soil. It can also be grown as an aquatic plant in shallow bog area of ponds. A clumping variety with pups produced only at the base. Colocasia Black Saphire gecko ppaf gets it's name from the leaves as a breeder of elephant ears I have kept a look out for any odd traits to work with. I have produced a lot of black elephant ears with dark shinny foliage but this one had such and odd reflective look to it it was chosen for production. I will post a photo to compare it with another hybrid I have called Painted black to show the difference in leaves and reflectivness.
