Elephant Ear’s attraction for the garden is that their grand one foot long glossy leaves will completely turn areas of your yard that were once barren into an oasis without any work on your behalf. Extremely drought tolerant like most Colocasia, it's their winter hardiness that sets these varieties apart. Now, north of Miami and up to Chicago and even into Boston, you can enjoy these Elephant Ears season after season! Even if you live where the temperatures gets quite cold in the winter, they go dormant and come back in the summer! These winter hardy elephant ears are perfect for homes and urban gardens across the country, excelling right in the ground or in containers that can be left outside in the winter, or brought indoors as a wonderful wintertime houseplant. Like all Coloacasia, it’s deer resistant, drought tolerant, and disease resistant while growing quickly to 3 feet tall and wide. These giant Elephant Ears with their large and lush foliage are so apt to change the entire atmosphere of your garden.  A cinch to grow, all they need is sun and water and they will transform the energy of your garden to a place of refuge, tranquility and serenity. They are absolutely easy to grow and emphatically gorgeous anywhere around your sunny garden. If you live in a colder climate and want to provide a little extra insulation, just provide a nice winter protective layer of mulch or burlap around the base or site them close to your home for added protection.
