Bergenia Dragonfly™ Sakura


USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.105.270

Bergenia are incredibly hardy, and reliably evergreen throughout nearly the entire continent. 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. This Bergenia was introduced to the market by Terra Nova Nurseries of Oregon. The blossoms reminded them of cherry blossoms and since that is "Sakura" in Japanese, that’s what they named it. 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.
