Unique even among Bergenia, 'Ripple Effect' is set to stand out in the landscape with a robust habit of massive 13" wide leaves. The glossy green leaves are circular with a serrated, wavy margin. This is an excellent perennial to add architectural effect in the shade. Unlike other Bergenia, this is not evergreen and will go completely dormant after fall frost.
Bergenia can be used in a variety of ways in the landscape. It is most impressive when used as a durable, evergreen groundcover, but it can also be used in containers and rock gardens. It is quite effective at softening the hard edges of pavement and also works well as an edging or filler plant in flower borders. (Source: Walters Gardens, Inc.)
