Description

Bergenia 'Eden's Magic Giant' is a highly desirable cultivar with enormous dark leathery foliage that is large enough to resemble a cabbage or rhubarb. The huge leaves have a distinctive crumpled ruffled appearance with prominent light green veins. Tinges of purple occur in the winter months. The flowers are rose-pink and are borne in panicles on a tall robust stem. Responding well to a deep moist humus-rich soil, Bergenia 'Eden's Magic Giant' slowly forms a large clumping colony, its large foliage taking on a startlingly exotic presence particularly when used in a jungle context with suitably inspired planting combinations. Those that think Bergenia is just a fusty and boring old plant suitable only for low-maintenance suburban bedding would do well to experiment with this large-leaved cultivar. Planting combinations using more obviously exotic plants like bamboos, aroids, gingers and ferns will produce surprising and pleasingly stylish results.

Bergenia 'Eden's Magic Giant' was awarded an AGM in the 2007-2009 RHS Bergenia Trials with the following recommendation, “Outstanding. Flowers are very attractive, frilly, upright facing, mid pink with bright red stem."
