Description

Elephant Ear's are named due to their very large, smooth, shiny and evergreen leaves! If the lasting glossy foliage was not enough interest, Bergenia also boast huge displays of pink blooms in spring and summer, held high above the foliage, and are held on red stems! In autumn, leaves turn a brilliant of red. This is a beautiful focal plant for the perennial garden, and is much under-used in our opinion.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: Leaves 12", flowers 18-24"

Location: Sun or part probably best in a location that receives a bit of both.

Germination: Requires cold stratification. See germination information below.

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally within 60 days after the warming period, though they could take a few months. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and early May, is in a cold frame or cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
