Bergenia cordifolia Bartok

Elephant's Ears Bartok

The foliage of Bartok in winter develops a deeper colour than other Bergenia. A low growing evergreen of dark red to purple, rounder crumpled leaves make it stand out from the rest. Deep pink, funnel shaped flowers on towering stems from spring to early summer. A valuable source of nectar for early pollinators. The compact growth of Elephant’s Ears make it a suitable choice for the front of a border where it will provide all year colour. Bergenias are a useful ground cover for banks or rock gardens. They come from the rocky woodlands of the Himalaya and are quite at home in similar conditions. Good choice for underplanting. Bergenia Bartok can be used as a contrasting plant for softer foliage plants.
