Elephant's Ears (Elephants Ears, Elephants Ear, Bergenia)

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Elephant's Ears (Elephants Ears, Elephants Ear, Bergenia)
  • Latin Name: Bergenia spp.
  • Family Name: Saxifragaceae

The early flowering Elephant's Ears (which usually has pink flowers but can also be seen in shades of red and white), contains tannins, and although it is not classed as toxic, it would give a bitter taste so it is best to offer it in moderation only and as part of a varied diet. 

There are other plants called Elephant's Ears, so be sure you have the Bergenia species and not the Alocasia species.  See Alocasia.
