Buy Bergenia 'Bressingham White' elephant's ears: Pure white flowers and handsome deep green leaves

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Commonly known as elephant's ears, because of their large, leathery, oval leaves, bergenias have become fashionable again, thanks both to the number of new cultivars that have become widely available and to their usefulness in the garden. Bergenias are low maintenance, evergreen, will grow in sun or shade and tolerate a wide range of soils, including dry soils and clay.

    'Bressingham White' produces masses of pure white spikes in spring above large, deep green leaves that it retains throughout the year. A favourite of Edwardian garden designer Gertrude Jekyll and plantswoman Beth Chatto, this sturdy plant should be planted in groups as ground cover, for edging borders or providing a foil for delicate foliage plants.

  • Garden care: After flowering remove faded flowerheads. Cut off damaged foliage in spring. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring.

The autumn lipstick reds and pinks

Come autumn the flowers may be fading away, eclipsed by shorter and cooler days, but there’s still plenty of foliage whether on the ground, or held aloft against a sinking sun. Touches of lipstick-red, sombre-burgundy, orange-peel and mustard-seed glow in
