Bergenia are native to central Asia, from Afghanistan to China and the Himalayan region. They are clump-forming, evergreen perennials with a spirally arranged rosette of large, leathery, ovate or cordate leaves, often with wavy or saw-toothed edges. For most of the year, the leaves have a glossy green colour, but in autumn and winter and especially in poor soil, they often turn red or bronze. The flowers grow on a stem, similar in colour to a rhubarb stalk and most varieties have single, cone-shaped flowers. Bergenia cordifolia Purpurea has clusters of cerise pink flowers in late winter and early spring. A great plant for front of order or edging. Can be planted in a pot or other container. Use a good quality compost and ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmocote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year.
