    Thanks for pointing that out!
    That could very well happen with me, I have a poor hosta still in the pot from the store 3 months later, it was in a corner on the patio, behind a chair...:\
    I will just keep a close eye on it and not take the chance. It's packed in peat moss, along with an elephant ear, in a cardboard box. I plan on keeping it on the back porch, which should stay around 50-55F. If temps drop too bad I have a spare bedroom we keep closed off that I can store them in. My aunt said not to let the elephant ear get below 45F and she packed them together. Sure wish I had a root cellar...:(

    I would plant the hosta in the ground and mulch it. The elephant ear is never winter hardy that I know of.
