EE help

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

I'm trimming back my EE's to the ground, as I always do. I usually don't do anything else to them, after I put a little mulch on them. They're so thick, though, and some of the biggest ones are so high on top of the ground. Do you guys pull those up and store them? And, if so, how? Do you pull a bunch of them up? Mine always do pretty good considering the Texas sun, but I'm just wondering if they would do better if I really thinned them out. Please advise.

Try the Tropical forum. You'll get good info!

Sorry, drthor. It's Elephant Ears.

Thanks, Bigbubbles. I just always think folks around here will know more about how things do here, but I will try "tropical."

Thanks for the explanation.
I have been leaving my Elephant Ears bulbs in the ground for years.
They have always came back. Even after the Superbowl freeze.
Good luck !

Well, mine come back, too, but I'm just wondering if leaving them so thick/close together is good.

I thin them to keep them in check but can imagine they might get so thick as to make smaller leaves near the center of the clump.
