Perfect for flanking an entrance or setting off a border!

Even the stems get into the act -- they're maroon!
Everyone loves these giant, charcoal-dark leaves! Perfectly formed 2-foot "ears" of deepest, duskiest purple cascade from all sides of this imposing 5- to 6-foot plant, filling the partly-shaded garden with bold form, great texture, and the kind of color that makes everything around it shine a little more brightly.

The "ears" are beautifully shaped, with dark veins and bright maroon stems -- striking from a distance and fascinating up close! And one of the best things about Black Magic is its adaptability to different garden designs. Make it the centerpiece of an elegant black-and-white patio planting, for instance, or use it in a long row to face down green, yellow, and blue Hostas.

Perfect for flanking an entrance, casting its graceful foliage over the border, or standing in solitary splendor in the partly-shaded garden, this plant is hardy in zones 7-10, and has been known to survive zero degrees Fahrenheit without damage. It needs no care beyond watering, and will be a joyous, long-lived addition to your garden. Zones 7-10.
