Bergenia ciliata 'Dumbo'

Dumbo Bergenia

Deciduous Perennial

"Outstanding Qualities
Large fuzzy, oval green leaves are the distinctive feature of this superb perennial. In springtime clusters of pastel pink flowers top stout stalks above the 12 to 14 inch long leaves. In colder climes the foliage will be deciduous while in warmer areas they are semi-evergreen.

Culture Notes
Plant in full sun and water regularly or in light to open shade and water occasionally during the dry season. Bergenia will grow well in most soil types as long as they are well-drained."
