I was wondering if anyone could give me a ID on a EE. I bought this from an Amish nursery in southern KY. I have never seen one offered before in my area. It makes me think of rhubarb!
I will try and get a picture of it when I get home. Its leaves are dark, kinda like Black Magic but a bit lighter. It is nice!

|There is a Colocasia cultivar named 'Rhubarb' but it has green leaves. There are no photos yet in our database: Rhubarb Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta 'Rhubarb')|
Plant Delights has it: Rhubarb Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta 'Rhubarb')
There are many with dark leaves and dark or reddish petioles; a few for comparison:
Taro (Colocasia esculenta 'Black Coral')
Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta 'Black Magic')
Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta 'Black Runner')
Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta 'Diamond Head')
Elephant Ear (Colocasia esculenta 'Midnight')
