This is one hard working, sexy elephant ear. The first time we saw Black Ripple (formerly known as 'Puckered Up') in the trial fields, we were blown away by the number of stems and leaves, the sheen and the amazingly puckered foliage. This is one of the most impressive colocasias released in a long time. The light plays off of each pucker to make the foliage look a lot like a shiny turtle shell. The habit is rather compact, with many stems, so this one will make a lovely presentation in any retail setting in a one, two or three gallon pot.
