Bergenia are incredibly hardy, and reliably evergreen. This selection forms a low clump of green leaves, which develop rich plum-red tones in the winter. Taller stems of bright pink, double to semi-double flowers rise above the shiny foliage in mid spring. The blossoms resemble those of cherry blossoms, "Sakura" in Japanese. 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. Easily divided in spring or early fall.
