|Black Magic Taro, one my
favorite pond plants.
It grows about 4' tall and it is an incredible color
that is described as different colors depending on who
is viewing the plant.
Some refer to the color as deep burgundy, while others
see it as charcoal black. And still others say it a
violet -black color.
It is a dusty looking color no matter what color one
call it. I have had very good luck growing them in the
pond if I keep the water level even with the crown of
the plant or even slightly higher. I grow mine in my
pond in a plant stand.
Black Magic is a totally awesome plant and it a plant
that draws the most comments in my pond.
It is a plant that once one sees it, they too must have
it for their pond.
Full sun to full shade
Keep the top of the pot even with the
top of the water
It is hardy to zone 8 but does very well in the house
in water filled saucer in front of sunny window in the
lesser climates for the winter.
