The Plants Are Arriving

Another package arrived with a plant at Garden on Sherlock Street.  Eventually, this should be a large 'black magic' elephant ears plant.  I was surprise it already has leaves.  I thought I was going to just get a bulb.  Maybe it sprouted while in transit.  It is going to hang out in the house a bit before getting a home in the garden.

  1. I've been trying to figure out if I have a spot for elephant ears. Hope you enjoy yours.

  2. Always fun to get new plants! I put a coleus, Persian shield, hydrangea, a sedum, and a salvia in today.

  3. Oooh. .that will be great!! I have that one on my list for "someday"! Did you know that you can grow elephant ears in your little water garden? That's where mine will probably go. .it's a little more reliable water source out here in hot and windy land!

  7. I love the Black Magic Elephant Ears. I have a green one that I plant in a foot tub. Then I can just carry it into the basement for the winter. I think my mail carrier dislikes me this time of the year. LOL!

  8. Rub it in!!!:) How fun! Number one....enjoy the Black Magic.....actually all Elephant Ears are amazing fun....hold your bulbs over winter to use over and over and over again. They can be pricey with a grove:)

  9. This is one of my favorite summer plants to grow that doesn't have flowers! Well maybe it does but that isn't why I grow it, love those huge ears in the shade.

  10. Congratulations on the new kid :lol:

    You'll love 'Black Magic' as a bold foliage accent. I am not surprised that it has a couple of leaves as it is a strong grower.
