The giant, velvety-green leaves of elephant ears bring a tropical look to gardens and containers. Give these heat-lovers plenty of moisture and some protection from hot sun. 

Care

Zones 8 - 11 (many Tennesseans have success keeping these are outdoor perennials) Full to partial sun with shade during the hottest part of the day, if possible. The more sun the plant receives, the more water it will need. Prefers well draining but moist, fertile soil. Fertilization will help your Elephant Ear grow big! They are fast growing and tend to reach their mature size in just a few months.
