Bergenia 'Bach'

Height x Spread:  30cm x 30cm

Bergenia 'Bach' is one of those plants that really cheer on a cold grey day in early spring.  A new evergreen cultivar, it has been bred for its clusters of sugar pink bell-like flowers with rosy centres that stand soldier-like over neat mounds of oval leathery green foliage on striking dark red stems. As the flowers mature they turn white. 

Tough, hardy and long flowering, it is often grown for groundcover, helping to keep weeds out but it is actually far more versatile.  In winter its foliage takes on rich dark red tints, making it a great choice for a winter container especially when combined with spring bulbs.  To thrive it needs a fertile, free-draining soil with moisture in partial shade or sun, with the best foliage colour developing in good light levels.
