Visitors always remark on our Elephant Ears....they take pictures standing next to them, and then they hide behind one leaf and peek out. I mound up wood chips in the winter over the bulbs, and it gets easily in the teens here in Nashville. You won't regret adding this to your garden....not one bit.
