If you’re looking for bold and unique foliage for your garden designs, Black Varnish Plant is just what the plant doctor ordered. It offers large glossy near black leaves on an upright stalky plant making it ideal to use as a thriller in mixed containers or as an accent in seasonal beds. Combining well with light colored flowers, it also contrasts great with white variegated or chartreuse foliage plants. Another contrast it provides is when its large leaves are next to smaller leaved, fine foliaged things. Apparently this selection has been around for several decades but recently became popular again.
