Q.elephant ears

swordk added on June 29, 2012 | Answered

I dug and divided my elephant ears. I just did that a couple days ago. If I plant them again, will they come back till fall like they should or will they wait till next year becouse I am trying to sell some of the bulbs. I dug and I was wondering if it would take till next year to come up or if they’ll come up through the summer and die back on schedule in the fall.

They should come up again for you, but they likely will not get to their large size as usual. But they will be better off in the ground than being stored until next year as being in the ground will allow them to store energy to make it through the winter.
