Bergenia ‘Eden’s Dark Margin’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.105.130

Bergenia are incredibly hardy, and reliably evergreen throughout nearly the entire continent. This selection forms a mound of large, leathery green leaves with pencil-line red edges, turning deep maroon during winter. Short stems of magenta-purple flowers rise above the foliage in mid spring. Nice for edging or massing as a groundcover. Bergenia sometimes look a little beaten up by winter: simply remove any browned or ugly leaves in mid spring. Clumps may be divided in early fall or after blooming in spring every 4 to 5 years if desired.
