Elephant ears

Asked November 8, 2017, 8:53 AM EST

This season we moved some elephant ears from their containers and planted them in ground. They responded beautifully, and are quite large now. Should we wait until frost to bring them in or get them inn prior to frost? Should we put them in containers over winter, or should we separate the bulbs and dry them out over winter? What about the foliage if we put them in containers? I'd like your best practice recommendations as a horticulturist, and any links to information that may help me out as well. As always I thank you and appreciate your advice.
