Hardy to zone 6 , with striking leaves

Colocasia Tropi-Cools™ 'Madeira'

Madeira is a compact, black-leaved selection with a luscious, velvety look that everyone wants to touch.

Midway in size between a caladium and an elephant ear, Madeira grows only 2-3' tall, adding depth and drama to garden compositions. It is an ideal selection for the mid border or as a foliar element in large containers, where it contrasts and complements brightly colored foliage and flowers. Another great character trait of this new selection is that unlike other black-leaved forms, Madeira will not spread and take over your garden.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
