My! What Big Ears You Have

I love elephant ears (this one is Mammoth).

They remind me of the tropics.  They look great in big, chunk pots and fill a space like nothing else will.

This was my first year growing these.  (I tried in 1998 but the bulb never took.)  I bought the bulb at Home Depot for $1 in June and hoped for the best.

Next year, I'll definitely grow more and intersperse them with plenty of cannas.

My tropical paradise in New England... and the Japanese beetles tend to leave these alone.
