Bergenia - Hybrids
All to often consigned to a shady corner Bergenia will, in our experience give of their best in an open sunny spot. Perhaps our generally poor dry soil suits them but if you choose those cultivars which colour well in the winter they become an essential feature for the colder months. All come out of their winter hues as the weather warms and give a good display of flower in late spring, usually April. Bergenia 'Morgenrote' is alone in giving a second flush of flower in July/August.
