Bergenia Silverlight = 'Silberlicht'
Elephant Ears - 2 litres
Bergenia 'Silberlicht' (Silver Light) is a popular variety of this tough, easy evergreen perennial, with white flowers ageing to pink in March-April and handsome glossy, leathery leaves which make good ground cover. The flowers are attractive to bees and both leaves and flowers are good for flower arranging. Height and spread 30-45cm by 45-60cm. Suitable for the front of a border, a shady corner or edging a path, thriving in rich, moist but well-drained soil in sun or shade, though tolerant of poor, dry soil once established. Benefits from splitting occasionally after flowering and frequent mulching. RHS Award of Garden Merit. British nursery grown.
