Imperial Taro is one of the most striking plants in our garden after it emerges in early June! This black-leaved elephant ear has dramatic green veins, highlighting the black background...always a conversation piece. Imperial Taro has proven hardy below 0 degrees F in our garden. The plant is slightly stoloniferous in heavy dry clay but abounds freely in wet organic soils...you will love it!
