This superb 2006 Agri-Starts introduction is a stunning mutation of the popular Colocasia 'Illustris'. If you can imagine intensifying the black leaf color and removing some of the green veins from Colocasia 'Illustris', you can visualize Colocasia 'Black Beauty'. In the ground, Colocasia 'Black Beauty' is also somewhat stoloniferous like Colocasia 'Illustris', making a 4' wide patch in 3-4 years...simply stunning.
