Bergenia 'Bressingham Ruby'

It is hard to imagine that Bergenias are high alpines, but there are Chinese and Himalayan species that come from high in the mountains, in sheltered places on cliffs or in the lee of the high-altitude trees or rhododendrons. They make clumps or mats of large, rounded, glossy leaves which are attractive in their own right, and have panicles of bell-shaped flowers, in shades of pink or white. There are also many cultivated varieties.

Bergenia 'Bressingham Ruby' produces lots of exquisite magenta flowers on stems which rise above the foliage. Robust, glossy broad leaves are deep green and look good all year round, which is why they are sometimes referred to as elephant ears. This delightful plant will definitely lighten any shady corner.
