Green becomes red

DAY 171 (23 SEPTEMBER) – Siberian tea (Bergenia crassifolia) (Guildford)

Dashed out in a downpour for this one. The plant is so-called because it’s used as a tea substitiute in Siberia – and also Mongolia. It’s also known as elephant ears, presumably because of the leaf shape.

Love the colour range here, especially how the red appears to be seeping into the green. Here we come autumn!
