Answer: Elephant's Ears are herbaceous perennials meaning they will lose their leaves at the end of the season and the tuber will go dormant. After it rests over the winter months, it will grow new foliage. Since it is so late in the season, I wouldn't worry about the holes in the leaves. Keep it outdoors and wait for frost to kill all of the foliage. Then cut the dead foliage off, dig the tuber and store it in dry peatmoss in an unheated garage or basement (somewhere where it is cold, but does not freeze). In the spring, repot the tuber and it will grow new foliage. Best wishes with your garden!
