Description
Colocasia Coal Miner has smoke colored leaves with green veining; earlier to emerge; slow spreading; full to part sun; 4'-5'; winter hardiness zone 7b-10; This item is a PLANT, and will arrive in ~4" pots from tissue culture. (These are best grown in 70°+ soil or start indoors ahead of time on a heat mat).

Native to tropical Asia and Polynesia and considered an evergreen perennial tuberous herb, Colocasia has given us lots of pleasure all summer long with its huge, velvet or glossy textured, dark green, heart-shaped leaves that are lined with darker veins, adding real drama to the shade garden near our pond. It's also spectacular as a sturdy backdrop for perennials in the flower border, although we suspect in most full sun situations, it will perform better if a soaker hose provides a little constant moisture. Excellent for water gardens when planted in a pot submerged in the pond; plant 18" on center; whz 8-11 (zone 7 in damp soil with mulch) (HINT: The height seems to have everything to do with the richness of the soil and the available moisture); Esculenta will arrive in bulb form; all of the rest are from tissue culture and will arrive in ~4' pots ready for your garden or for a larger pot on the heat mat, depending on where you live.
