I live in Austin, Tx where we have very mild winter. I have two elephant ear plants in front yard. Not looking great but still green. What should I do? Cut the leaves back or dig bulbs out cut off and replant??

I would leave the bulbs in for this season. You can cut half of the larger leaves off and leave the rest on the bulb. When the new leaves grow you can then prune away the remaining older leaves if they decline.
