Bergenia cordifolia Rotblum

Elephant's Ears Rotblum

A striking plant commonly used en mass for a colourful carpet. Rotblum is a low growing evergreen with bronze-green wavy, rounded leathery leaves which turn bright red in autumn. In Spring towering red stems carry clusters of deep red pink funnel shaped flowers lasting from March to May. 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 a lovely 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. Rotblum can be used as a contrasting plant for softer foliage plants like ferns.
