Item details

You will receive 2 Roots...NOT Bulbs with the tops snipped for shipping....My Mother Plants Are Mammoth!!! See Photo #2. THESE ARE SMALL APPROXIMATELY 10"...BUT...They Grow into the Mammoth, Like the Mother plant. With Several Weeks you will start to see new growth.

Elephant’s ears offer some of the boldest foliage you could ever want in a garden. Huge, heart-shaped leaves come in black, purple, emerald green, chartreuse, yellow, or a mix of colors. The mammoth leaves can be more than 3 feet long on plants that can grow higher than 6 feet tall.

Growing elephant ear plants is easy. Most of these plants prefer rich, moist soil and can be grown in full sun, but they generally prefer partial shade. The tubers can be placed directly outdoors once the threat of frost or freezing temperatures have ceased in your area. Plant the tubers about 2 to 3 inches deep, blunt end down.

Most elephant’s ears are perennials and will come back every summer in the Lower, Coastal, and Tropical South. Some are perennials in the lower part of the Middle South. They like the soil to be relatively dry in winter. If gardening any farther north than that, lift tubers before the first frost and store them in a cool, dry place over the winter months.

Elephant ears cannot survive winter outdoors. Freezing temperatures kill foliage and damage tubers. Therefore, in areas with harsh, cold winters (like those in northernmost regions), the plants must be dug up and stored indoors. Cut the foliage back to about a couple of inches after the first frost in your area and then carefully dig up the plants. Allow the tubers to dry out for about a day or two and then store them in peat moss or shavings. Place them in a cool, dark area such as a basement or crawlspace. Container plants can either be moved indoors or overwintered in a basement or protected porch.

Your Plant Will Be Delivered U.S.P.S. First class Mail...

Happy Digging!!!
