Description
A lush and leafy year-round ground cover to brighten up a shaded spot. Also known as Elephant’s Ears, Bergenia cordifolia 'Purpurea' has large, glossy rounded foliage which takes on a purplish hue in winter. In spring, vibrant pink flowers emerge on upright stalks providing a welcome splash of colour to kick-start the season. The flowers are also an essential source of nectar for early bees - perfect if you’re looking to introduce more pollinator-friendly plant to the garden. Height: 50cm (30”). Spread: 75cm (30”).

How to Grow
Plant Elephant’s Ears in any well-drained soil in sun or dappled shade. Bergenia will cope with clay soils very well too.
More Info
After flowering, remove the faded flowerheads of Bergenia. Cut off any damaged foliage as it occurs too, to keep plants tidy. Lift and divide clumps in spring.
