The Q&A Archives: Black Magic Elephant Ears

Question: I saw black elephant ears (Colocasia esculenta 'Black Magic') in my latest Springhill catalogue but when I tried to order them they had already run out. Can you help me locate a source for this particular cultivar?

P.S. I called a number for Slocum Water Gardens that you have listed in your search library and it is out of service. If they are the source you would try, do you have an alternate number?

Answer: Darn it! I was going to recommend Spring Hill! Here are some leads for you:

Plant Delights, email:

Louisiana Nursery, email:

Tricker, William, Inc. ph. 800-524-3492

Lilypons Water Gardens, ph. 800-999-5459

Regarding Slocum, here is the most current number I have for them: ph. 941-293-7151

Good luck, and if you come up empty handed, please revisit the website and post again and we will send the search party out again.
