The Plants

Bergenia 'Bressingham White'

Commonly known as elephant's ears, because of their large, leathery, oval leaves, bergenias have become fashionable again, thanks both to the number of new cultivars that have become widely available and to their usefulness in the garden. Bergenias are low maintenance, evergreen, will grow in sun or shade and tolerate a wide range of soils, including dry soils and clay. 'Bressingham White' produces masses of pure white spikes in spring above large, deep green leaves that it retains throughout the year.
