That old black magic

Black magic elephant ears are an absolute must in my chocolate garden! The plants are somewhat pricy to purchase at around fifteen dollars each—and that's if you can even find them—so most years I buy and plant the tubers myself. Hard to believe that the little clumps grows into the gorgeously seductive, large black leaves, which catch the wind and also add movement in the garden. Other plants in my chocolate garden include black Sambucus elderberry, black hollyhock, black pansies, and black mondo grass. The dark foliage pops against the lime green creeping jenny and lime green hostas in the garden also. Seek out and plant these elephant ears in your garden this summer—you won't be disappointed!
