Bergenia

Bergenia (ber-jee-nee-uh) Saxifrage Family (Saxifragaceae); Asiatic perennials with bold ornamental foliage in large low clumps, from which rise thick stems with loose clusters of May flowers.

Bergenia thrives in almost any amount of sunlight, but partial shade is ideal. In northern regions, it will grow in full sun, but it needs afternoon shade in the south. In either region, plants will always perform best in rich, moisture-retentive soil. However, it dislikes heavy soils and standing water. Propagate by division in early spring or by seed. Divisions should be replanted fairly deep into the soil.

B. cordifolia (kor-dif-foh-lee-uh) dark pink flowers, in graceful sprays, rise 15 to 18 inches above the thick clustered leaves. "Pig Squeak", from the sound the leaf makes when rubbed between two fingers.

Bergenia can be used in a variety of ways in the landscape. It is most impressive when used as a durable, evergreen groundcover, but it can also be used in containers and rock gardens. It is quite effective at softening the hard edges of pavement and also works well as an edging or filler plant in flower borders.

Attributes: Border plants, Container, Cut flower or foliage, Edging, Evergreen, Ground cover, Salt Tolerant, Easy to grow. Attracts butterflies .
