(aka: Colocasia 'Puckered Up') Colocasia esculenta 'Black Ripple' is a relatively new introduction from Kentucky's Brian Williams. The narrow, glossy black foliage is heavily puckered, resulting in a unique three-dimensional, textured appearance atop the dark violet stems. Moist, rich soils produce the best plants, which when happy will reach 4' tall x 3' wide.
