Black Ripple Taro – Unique and Exotic Addition to Your Garden

About the Bloom

The Black Ripple Taro plant is known for its stunning dark purple-black leaves that create a dramatic and exotic look in any garden. While it doesn’t produce traditional blooms, the deep color and ruffled texture of the leaves make it a standout feature that adds a touch of mystery and intrigue to your landscape.

What to Know About the Plant

This tropical plant showcases striking black leaves with ruffled edges, adding a bold and captivating element to your garden. The Black Ripple Taro is a deciduous plant, meaning it goes dormant in colder months but regrows in spring, providing year-round interest. It can grow up to 3-4 feet tall, making it an ideal choice for adding height and texture to your garden beds or containers.

Enhancing your Fruitscape

Pair the Black Ripple Taro with tropical fruit trees like Banana and Mango to create a lush and exotic paradise in your garden. The dark foliage of the Taro plant contrasts beautifully with the vibrant colors of fruit-bearing trees, creating a visually stunning display. Mix in herbs like Lemongrass and Mint for a fragrant and practical addition to your landscape design. Consider adding ornamental plants like Bird of Paradise or Hibiscus to complement the unique look of the Black Ripple Taro and enhance the overall tropical ambiance of your garden.

Planting & Care
Landscaping with House Plants

While this plant is perfectly suited for growing in a container as a house plant, it can just as well be planted in the ground to enhance a garden. We love these plants for that reason. They add instant appeal to spruce up the atmosphere wherever you choose. They typically prefer a little more shade and warmth which is why they do well on a patio or inside the house. The love of house plants is so natural and healthy. House plants improve the quality of air and enhance our moods. That’s why we can’t seem to get enough of them! Try mixing colors and textures to find your favorite planter look.

Growing Guide

Currently, we only have growing guides for our edible plants.   We are working on them for our ornamental & landscaping plants, and will add them in the near future.  Contact us if you have questions on how to plant and nurture your House Plants, and we will be glad to have one of our gardeners assist you.

Ornamental & Landscaping Plants at Just Fruits & Exotics

Although Just Fruits and Exotics has been providing ornamental and landscaping plants to customers at our nursery since we added “Exotics” to our name in the 1990’s, we never had them available to our customers online.

However, September of 2018, with the launch of our updated Just Fruits and Exotics website, we added many of our ornamental and landscaping plants to our online store for our customers nationwide.   We encourage you to “Fruitscape” your yards, mixing edibles and ornamentals to make your own edible garden.

Shipping Restrictions

Unfortunately, We Cannot Process Orders to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or Internationally:  Please note that due to specific agricultural regulations, we’re unable to ship any plants to the states of California, Hawaii, and Alaska, or outside the United States.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
