Colocasia esculenta ‘Coal Miner’
A stunning tropical plant with deep black stems and heart shaped dark green, almost black leaves reaching 60cm with light green veins. They can reach a nice size fairly quickly and is one of tallest dark leaved varieties. I find this variety fairly easy to overwinter in a heated polytunnel or greenhouse.
Max height 1.5m.
Requires moist soil, can be used in bog gardens.
