Best Summer Bulbs for Containers: Elephant ears are dramatic plants with big, heart-shaped leaves that nod and sway in every passing breeze. Though elephant ears are only winter hardy in zones 9-11, they can be grown anywhere in the U.S. In cool climates, the bulbs grow best in containers. This also makes it easy to bring the plants indoors for the winter months.
