BLACK MAGIC ELEPHANT EAR

I received my Elephant Ear plant 3 weeks ago, a little later than I had expected. Nevertheless, when it was came. I was really impressed with how well it was packaged & the size of the plant. It was a beautiful dark leaved 2 foot tall healthy baby elephant ready for its place in my yard. Since planting it, it has done very well & is now starting to sprout a bunch of other baby ears already. Can't wait until it grows a little bigger but I am very happy with it so far. It really looks very striking between my 2 adult green ears. Love it, love it, love it!!!
