Bergenia purpurascens

Common name elephant's ears
Family saxifragaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers purple (spring)
Size 18"
Light sun-part shade

Smaller, glossier leaves than the more commonly grown Bergenia cordifolia. The leaves turn red in winter.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
