(24-36" tall x 36-48" wide) ‘Mojito’ Elephant Ear is a favorite among gardeners for their tropical foliage and ease of care. Elephant ears are quite versatile in the landscape, adding dramatic texture and color to mixed beds and borders or container plantings. Give these plants plenty of water and afternoon shade; they can be grown in full shade, but foliage color is more intense with some sun. Elephant ears can be grown in up to 6-inches of standing water, making them an ideal emergent plant for water gardens or for planting in streambeds. These are frost-sensitive plants. ‘Mojito’ is winter hardy in zones 8-10 and frost sensitive. In colder areas, dig bulbs before the first frost; bulbs can be grown indoors in containers over the winter, or stored in a dormant state and replanted in spring. For winter storage, trim foliage and allow plants to cure for one to two days in a warm, dry location; store in a plastic bag or ice chest filled with moist peat moss, in a dark and cool (not freezing) place, such as a basement.
