At one time I wanted to rip every 'elephant ear' out of my yard. I thought
them to be old fashioned (I still think they are) and boring. They also are a great hiding place for lots and lots of snails that chomp away at nearly every foliage they creep across. But over time I realized these 'old fashioned' plants were a welcome splash of pink in the earliest of spring and they fill up rockery crevices like nobody's business, leaving no room for weeds.
