Bergenia cordifolia Shoeshine™ ‘Rose’


Bergenia

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.105.150


Bergenia are incredibly hardy, and reliably evergreen throughout nearly the entire continent. Plants form a low clump of bold, leathery green leaves, which often turn bronze during winter. This is a new variety of Bergenia from the Shoeshine™ series featuring strong stems of deep rose blooms rising above the glossy, dark green foliage in mid spring. 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. Easily divided in spring or early fall.
