This perennial bulb is one of a kind. In zones 8 through 10, this bulb can be left in the ground as a perennial. Elephant Ears can grow well in 6 inches of standing water or in moist soil. Do not let its soil dry out during hot summers. If you are north of zone 8 then you will need to dig up your bulbs after first frost and store in a cool (above 45 degrees F), dry place. For best results store the bulbs in dry peat moss or wood shavings. Replant your bulbs in the spring, around the beginning of April.
