It's just a bit more work, that's all! Elephant ears (see photo above), for instance, is a tuberous bulb plant grown as a foliage plant. Northern gardeners can dig up the bulbs before winter arrives and store them away till spring. Alternatively, treat them as if they were annuals and replace them each year.
