USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

(36” tall x 36” wide) ‘Mojito’ Elephant Ears takes tropical foliage to a new level. The long, mottled stems of ‘Mojito’ are topped with large 15-18” leaves that slowly unfurl in tones of green and chartreuse, liberally painted with vibrant splashes of purple.  As the summer wears on and other plants grow weary, Elephant Ears (Colocasia) become more vigorous – colorful right up until the first frost! Plant Colocasia ‘Mojito’ in spring in a sunny or part-sun location in moisture-retentive soil after all danger of frost has passed, and feed and water regularly for best results. Gardeners in zones 8-10 can leave ‘Mojito’ in the ground for next year’s display. In colder zones, it will need to be dug or the container brought into a cool, dry, dark space above 40F, such as a garage or basement. Elephant ears are seldom severely damaged by deer.
