Hi everyone, I'm looking for Bergenia suggestions for my border. I have a few given to me by a friend but have no clue as to their type! I'm looking to use them as ground cover and winter interest so want the evergreen types with smaller leaves - not the 'dumbo' type - that go bronze/purple in winter. My soil is sandy and they'd be in part-shade in an East-facing bed.
So far I've identified Bressingham Ruby and Pink Dragonfly but really want someone who knows more to help! Many thanks
I saw a smaller one and bought it recently, only just planted it. Named Diamond Drops.
The label reads clusters of crisp white flowers held on short red stems above thick green leaves from early spring.
Foliage takes on attractive coppery tones in cold weather.
Height & Spread 30 cm x 45
They seem to be good doers generally mine is planted on clay, but with a layer of rather dry topsoil in partial shade under a tree at the moment.
Too newly planted to say how it will perform but seems to be settling in nicely.
If you type in dwarf varieties I know there is a site or company with a list of newer dwarf types listed.
Note the leaves are smaller, I think the height is the flowering height.
Neat leaves, gorgeous deep pink flowers.
(sorry I won't/don't use Google on principal ))
But by checking the name online you can also find out that info if not in Silvery Surfers link Charlotte:o)
