The Black Magic Elephant Ear is a bold, tropical perennial that tolerates wet and shady sites. Transform your patio, pool area, home, or garden into a tropical oasis with this richly colored, unique plant! Have deer been munching on your patio plants? Replace them with the deer resistant Black Magic Elephant Ear!

Huge, purple to black leaves float in the air atop herbaceous, deep purple stalks. These heart shaped leaves grow up to two feet long! Black Magic Elephant Ears are fast growing, easily reaching 3 to 6 feet in a single growing season!

The Black Magic Elephant Ear prefers moist soil. In fact these plants can even grow in wet conditions and low ponds. These plants thrive in full sun to part shade. Some shade is recommended in zone 10. Add a balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting, in early spring, and late summer for best results. Elephant ears are hardy in zones 8-10. Cooler climates can dig up the bulbs after the foliage begins to die back or plant in containers and move them inside in the winter to enjoy them year after year.

Each plant we package and ship will carefully be inspected to make sure that you receive the highest quality plant possible, free from insect infestations and disease. All of our plants are living and healthy at time of shipping.

There are many factors that affect a plant. Weather, soil conditions, watering conditions, animal and pest damage, etc. Since we are shipping live plants, timing is critical. Most orders are processed and shipped within 1 - 3 days from checkout.

On occasion an order can take up to 5 days for processing. We plan each shipment to avoid your plants sitting in a truck over the weekend if possible. This means orders may be held until the following monday to ensure the shortest ship time. This delay will guarantee that your plants arrive the highest quality possible. Plants that specify shipping at different seasons will be shipped when they become available. ex. ships fall
