Who doesn’t love the bold, dramatic texture that Elephant Ears bring to the summer garden? Whether you are in a colder area or not, there are a few simple steps you should take to over-winter your tubers for next spring’s planting.
Hardiness Zones 1-6

If you’re in Zones 1-6, this means you will need to bring your Elephant Ears inside for the winter. It’s a fairly simple process:
– After your first frost, cut the stems to about 6 inches tall.
– Put the tubers in a grocery bag, plastic pot or bulb rate and cover with a mix of peat moss and soil.
– Add water to the container and store it in a cool, dark place to ensure the tuber stays dormant throughout the winter. Keep your Elephant Ears moist but not wet.
Hardiness Zones 7-11
In these Hardiness Zones, your Elephant Ears can stay in the ground but should be covered to protect them throughout the winter months.
– Let the stems of your plants die back naturally with the frost. Cutting them can lead to rot.
– Cover your plants with chopped-up leaves and lawn grass. This helps to keep the Elephant Ears warm and insulated throughout the winter months. Reinforce with chicken wire or simply create a mound.
– Uncover the plants after the last spring frost.
