    JDub Hi, I don't know about plants, but I think they are called Elephant Ears. OurHome talk team will respond to your question, those who really know about plants.

      It is a Canna Lily. I live in zone 7 and I leave them in the ground to overwinter. Leave the foliage for protection (or mulch). They will appear in late spring and can be divided as desired.

    I think Hosta, which needs shade, loves water. Elephant ears are large.

    Its a Canna lily. I have several different types.

    Definitely a Canna. They have beautiful flowers and like sun. They die back

    in the winter and come back each spring. They are great plants. Mine have deep red flowers and with the blooms are about 4 ft tall. If you leave it in a pot it will need protection from the cold. Enjoy. Research for your area. But they are Cannas.

    I live in Texas and have a bunch these Cannas in my backyard. In the late fall, I just cut them to about a foot or so and every year they come back. We get some pretty harsh weather here.

    There are lots of free apps that help identify plants also with just a photo.
