Colocasia ‘Dark Stem’

£4.50£8.00

Supplied as a potted plant, established in either 1 litre or 9cm pots.

Colocasia ‘Dark Stem’ is a form of Colocasia esculenta, but with a particularly dark, chocolate brown / maroon stem. The leaves are a deep matt green.

‘Dark Stem’ is well worth growing, being vigorous, tall, and easy to please. In addition, it is tolerant of cool temperatures and has overwintered for us well in a cold greenhouse when kept dry, retreating back to the tuber before emerging again in the spring.

Often sold as ‘Burgundy Stem’, this is in fact a very different plant – the true ‘Burgundy Stem’ is quite distinct.
