East Himalayas. Evergreen, rubbery leaves measure 4 inches wide and 6 inches long on 4 inch stems. In the autumn, they turn tones of red and smoky purple red. The leaves also curl slightly like incomplete homemade sugar cones. Perhaps this creates a natural funnel for conducting rainwater. The nodding flowers of Bergenia purpurascens appear on strong purple stems.
