Black Pearl Is Up From It’s Long Winter Nap

On 25 April, I noticed while close the gate into the backyard from the front side yard that something was growing near where the Colocasia ‘Black Pearl’ was last year. Once I got the gate closed, I excitedly got down on my knees and saw that the ‘Black Pearl’ was coming up in two different places near the orginal plant. I knew it was suppose to be hardy to zone 6 and we only fell to 2f this past winter, but I was still nervous that it wouldn’t come back.


Now I am still waiting for ‘Pink China’ and ‘Big Dipper’ to pop out of the ground and get on their way to growing. We have mainly had rain and rain and more rain, so I am hoping that they will pop up soon. I would recommend ‘Black Pearl’ to anyone that is wanting a hardy elephant ear plant. Guess we will see if anymore of ‘Black Pearl’ pushes up after we finally get some sun this weekend before more rain next week.
