    Check with your local nursery for recommendations. They know what works in your area.

    Elephant ear grows from tubers, which send out roots and foliage when planted in a garden. You can leave the tubers in the ground year-round if you live in the plant's hardiness zones. If you live in a colder climate, you can overwinter the dormant tubers indoors and replant them each spring.

  • no, they are not cold hardy in your zone. I live in NC and I always lift them up and overwinter them under our house.
