Answer: Confusion often arises over sun exposure for southwestern gardeners because non-native plants that will take full sun elsewhere may fry in our intense sun, especially on summer afternoons. I wouldn't place your elephant ears in full sun heading into summer. I'd suggest something like the following depending on what sorts of exposure choices you have: dappled light beneath a tree canopy, morning (eastern) sun with shade in the afternoon, or bright indirect light beneath a patio overhang or near a front door alcove. Moving it around until you find the best location is a good idea. Good luck with your elephant ears!
