Elephant ear plants

Zone 45669 | Anonymous added on April 14, 2019 | Answered

I have had elephant ear plants for the past 3 years and always cut them down and cover with mulch before winter. I uncovered them today and saw just mush. Will my elephant ears come back or does that mean they are dead? Should I cover them back up or keep them uncovered?

Soft and mush bulbs should be removed and replaced.
