Bergenia are incredibly hardy, and reliably evergreen throughout nearly the entire continent. This selection forms a low clump of bold green leaves, which develop bronzy shades during winter. Stems of bell-shaped flowers rise above the shiny foliage in mid spring, white at first, ageing to very soft pink. The winter leaves are a valuable addition to cut flower bouquets. Most effective when mass planted or used as an edging along a walkway. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, in both sun or part shade.
