Features strap-shaped leaves 6-12” long, that emerge green, but soon turn to black with a lustrous surface. Mature plants form a tuft 8” high and up to 12” wide. White, not especially showy, flowers sometimes flushed pink appear in summer, then develop into shiny, black ornamental berries. Combine with Viola ‘Bowles Black’ for a truly Gothic effect.
