Bergenia ‘Dark Damsel’


Bergenia

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.105.260


Bergenia are incredibly hardy, and reliably evergreen throughout nearly the entire continent. This recent introduction forms a low clump of oval, dark green leaves which develop rich, plum-red tones in winter. On taller rhubarb-red stems, semi-double, deep pink flowers rise in mid spring. Nice for cutting. Bergenia are 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.
