Bergenias are well-known garden plants for the bold, paddle-shaped evergreen leaves that give rise to the common name of ‘elephant ears’ refer. The attractive flowers appear in early spring.
Grow bergenias in sun, partial shade or shade, in well drained soil. Mulch annually after flowering to promote good leaf growth and divide congested clumps in spring or autumn every few years. Deadhead after flowering and remove any tatty leaves to keep plants looking tidy.9 Aug 2021
