Bergenia ‘Reginald’ is a garden worthy plant that makes a top ground cover and requires little to no maintenance. The almost white blooms mature to rosy pink over the spring to summer flowering period. A vigorous selection with low, mounding, evergreen, rounded leaves.

In the ground, it is so versatile, prospering in the toughest spots; try it under trees, on embankments, in dry shade, even exposed areas with poor soils, it rarely disappoints. Bergenia even grow well in pots.

Commonly known as Elephant Ears, Bergenia may have fallen out of fashion but we think they have been underutilised and should make a comeback. Especially with improved forms such as this.

Plant in any well drained soil in a full sun to part shade position. Mulch with falling leaves in autumn and that is about it! You can remove spent flowers and leaves to tidy in spring but they need nary more care than that.

The botanical name of Bergenia was given to honour German botanist and Doctor, Karl August von Bergen (1704-1759).
