Bergenia cordifolia ‘Diamond Drops’

Dwarf Bergenia

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.105.230

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 dwarf variety features compact flower heads studded with pure white, cup-shaped florets. Bright stamens in the centre give the impression of sparkling diamonds. 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.
