Colocasia ‘Black Coral’ joins Royal Hawaiian series

Supplier News

The noninvasive plant is hardy to Zone 7b.

| June 20, 2011

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Colocasia ‘Black Coral’ is a new addition to the Royal Hawaiian Colocasia series with its deep black glossy foliage with electric blue veins. The award-winning collection of Royal Hawaiian Colocasias features varieties unlike any available in today’s market.

The Royal Hawaiian Colocasias have been bred to be sturdy garden performers and container specimens. If planted in the ground, ‘Black Coral’ will reach a mature height of around 4 feet, making a statement in the garden. It continues to branch as it matures, making a compact habit with shiny leaves. If used in containers for the patio, just remove old leaves and ‘Black Coral’ simply makes two to replace it. Easy care for the consumer.

This series is not invasive, and is hardy to Zone 7b. PlantHaven will be doing Zone 6 trials with partner growers this winter. Each variety in the series is disease resistant with fabulous foliage and stem interest, and with their tidy clumping habit would be a welcome addition in any garden or landscape.
