I have had one for years. I thought it is a hosta (oversized hosta) and treat it like all my hosta, and never dig it up unless I want to divide it.
I got some more, an now read it is a tender bulb, and is to be dug up every year in the fall and winter indoors (like my dahlias, I guess).
My normal hosta is all over the yard, my elephant ear is by the house where the dryer vent warms the area. I wanted to put these elephant ears in garden beds that are not close to the house, but now I am unsure if they will winter ok.
So are Elephant ears more tender then normal hosta? Or if my other hosta does ok not being dug up, will this do ok also?
