Bergenia ‘Bressingham Ruby’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.105.100

Bergenia are incredibly hardy, and reliably evergreen throughout nearly the entire continent. This exceptional British selection has rich, deep burnished maroon winter colour, turning deep green for the summer. In early spring, short stems of magenta-pink flowers rise above the shiny foliage. 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.
